Q: What about criticism of your own work? Did that ever help you?

A: Not really. I got comments from critics that I really didn't like and so I worked out ways of working in more of those things they really didn't like in my next story.

Q: What about criticism from editors and other writers?

A: That's different! These people are pros.
