Language is a technology. It’s a particularly strange one that’s made of squiggles and sounds and maps of meaning, but like any other technology, it’s hackable. So’s writing.
You might be writing a maker tutorial, business proposal, or a novel, you’re going to get notes at some point. This is a good thing. Seek them out. Find the smartest person you know and have them read your work and give you notes.
Taking notes, of course, can be difficult. Good notes don’t lead to little tweaks here and there. Good notes lead to genuine page one rewrites.
From a great article on taking notes and edits at litreactor:
A lot of writers believe editing to be proofreading and maybe fixing up weak a line here and there. This is not editing! This is someone doing the final copyedit after review [Advance Review Copies] have been sent out. I think there’s been some weird romanticism of a writer handing in the perfect draft and the publisher doing a minor proofread for typos and BOOM—the next great book is published.
This mentality really hurts aspiring writers from growing and working on their craft
