Academic Writing

Feedback on My Desk

A few posts ago, the scholarly writing class was imitating Warland’s table. It was a great exercise and just like the rest of this class, I thoroughly enjoyed. The feedback from everybody in the class is shown below (identities concealed).

But (and you knew there had to be one didn’t you?)… I have no idea how accept any kind of compliment or praise. Everybody says nice things to each other, the work in this class is genuinely very high standard, but I have never been able to handle anybody telling me my work is good. I brush it off, or I make some smart-arse remark.

Anything I do is acceptable, unless I’m told it isn’t. The latter doesn’t happen often, but when it does I damn well correct it, but to be told something is good? Nah, it’s alright I suppose… I’d love to know how to get past that.

Anyway, here’s the feedback, if any of you read this, thanks so much…
