I hope that I never reach this point; I love words and get great satisfaction from writing. I do sometimes feel the joy of reading leaking out of my pores as I read a story and see too much telling, plot holes, repeated phrases, and an abundance of adverbs.

If a story draws me in deeply, it is easier to turn the inner critic off.

Anyone else suffer from this?
