Are you bashing yourself or criticizing yourself?

Writers always have days where they hate their writing. At the same time, there are those times when you write a certain sentence and it comes out just perfect. Next thing you know, you feel like you’re on top of the world because your novel is now the greatest piece of literature on earth.

But, knowing whether you’re legitimately criticizing your work or just attacking it can seem a lot trickier to discern. It isn’t. You know how you filter other people’s criticism right? If they say, “Well, I liked the story…. but… you missplpeld that word…”

If you find yourself saying “this would be better”, it probably would be. On the other hand, if there are no suggestions, ideas popping out, or attempts to otherwise fix the problem, there probably isn’t a problem, you’re just bashing yourself.
