3-4: Utilizing Feedback (SF)

Posted on: by Michael Tringe

Key Points

Making Feedback Useful

  • Other writers can provide constructive writing feedback
  • Friends offer great notes because they understand your intentions
  • Don’t ruin others’ reading experience by telling them everything before they read
  • Listen for feedback about what worked according to your intentions
  • Ignore feedback that seems to be from left field
  • Use feedback to focus your vision, not destroy your story


  • Rewrite the first draft of your script
  • Gather feedback from two completely different sources
  • Evaluate the notes and incorporate useful feedback and ignore feedback that is off point
