I just received some very helpful criticism about the beginning chapters of my novel which is making me think a revision of the start is beyond due before I submit to any more agents. How do you know, or can judge, whether a comment or suggestion should be taken?
I have made mistakes when I was starting out with my crit group where I took everyone's advice (that's definitely not to be advised)... I then had to learn the hard lesson that no matter how hard you try, you can't please everyone.
I have decided that the beginning of Haven needs to be altered. A few people have pointed this out to me, so since there's more than one I know there's a problem... and it's hard for me to admit it. I know changing it will be good for the story as a whole.
So, how does everyone know when it's time to make some changes? Or, when it's time to make changes based on some critique you've received?
