Are You the Best Judge of Your Writing?
I' m not . Some of the stories I thought were winners, took time to place. And others, ones I thought were weak, did not.
Some of the stories I got the most positive feedback about, I almost didn't send out.
For instance THE PERFECT DAY, which several people cited as a favorite story of last year recently seemed too tame to count as a crime story.
I wondered if people would have the patience to spend the day with this family. If they could wait around to see what the problem was.
Does this happen to you? Are you a good judge of your own work? If you had to name the best thing you've written, would the rest of us agree?
