plus ça change...
Found a post from 2004 when I was still on Critters. This is some of the contradictory feedback I got on one of my first stories, "Galatea."
Master Tan's broken English is great, very authentic/is stereotypical and inconsistent
The conflict between Justin and Quinn is great, well done/there is no discernible conflict in the story
The development of Quinn's character is moving and believable/she's a horrible, unsympathetic person
She's a rip-off of Supergirl/Dark Angel/Kill Bill/Le Femme Nikita
It's a strong, character-driven story/nobody's motivations make any sense.
I guess keeping a diary can be useful after all, if only to remind oneself that feedback from the peanut gallery isn't all it's cracked up to be.
