Everyone's a critic
I'm not always asking for a critique. Okay, yes, sometimes I am. You know, to improve my work. But if that's the case, I'll ask for it.
Otherwise I'm just looking for you to tell me how great I am.
Actually, on this subject, I once told someone I was working on a script for a short film. She asked if she could read it. It was a work in progress but, what the hell, she asked so I let her read it. Weeks later, I was dragged out for some reason (some work thing) and her boyfriend was there. Drunk. He sat beside me and for about 2 hours told me what was wrong with my script. Not that there were 2 hours of comments to make. No, 48 seconds would have done it. But he felt the need to repeat himself over and over.
