Good creative writing is like dancing & sex. It's always better when you're going with the flow, open-minded & free of self-criticism. If you remain fearless enough to approach these activities with a freedom from inhibition, the coordination & grace will come (no pun intended)with repetition.
You can get lost in some pretty dark woods if you think about all the myriad ways your work can receive criticism. It takes courage to step out on your own into the darkness, with only your own light to shine the way. It's also important to keep in mind that all opinions are ultimately subjective. If you're innovating the way you should be, the in-the-box thinkers (who are the majority by the way) will not "get it" until some cultural arbiter tells them they "should" like it. Be unafraid to stay in the avant-garde, or ahead of the curve. As Teddy Roosevelt once said in the magnificent "Man in the Arena" section of his famous Citizenship in a Republic speech, he who attempts great achievements will at the worst, "...fail while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
Strike out on your own creators. Don't be afraid to branch out from The Herd.
