Alone, this word may strike fear in the heartiest of writers. We've been trained to believe that the word criticism leads to bad things. We've even come to preface it with a term like "constructive" to soften the potential blow. But, in all honesty, in the writing world, we need to consider the word's secondary definition: the analysis and judgment of the merits and faults of a literary or artistic work.

So, what inspires the story teller? Why do we put pen to paper (a phrase that may go the way of the Dodo in a not too distant future)? Personally, I write stories because I feel guilty not using one of the few unique talents I have. But, I also write because I enjoy the process.
