My classmates hate me

It's not my fault, really. I just can't help it when I see something that could be better, I just want to help them fix it.

The result: I talk too much in class. The teacher doesn't say it, I'm sure she wouldn't, but I don't blame my classmates for resenting me and my big mouth.

One good rule of feedback: Don't overload people. Of course, I consider myself bulletproof in the feedback department, but others might not be...

I don't hate you. Receiving criticism is never easy, but it's necessary. You said things that needed to be said. I hope that when I bring in pages that everyone will think they're utterly perfect - but if they're not, then I want to know what I need to work on.

But then, I also tend to be very vocal in class if I feel like something needs to be addressed.

I actually felt like I learned last night from listening to criticism of other people's work, even though we were hitting the same old concepts (conflict, writing visually, etc.) I guess I was just looking at them from a slightly different angle. Also, as we discussed the teasers in class, I compared the teasers from my Veronica Mars spec and my Lost spec to what we were discussing.

even if they do hate you now, what you're giving them may help them in the future. if they don't like you're advice, then they can choose to ignore it. but there may be that one person who listens & puts it to good use.
