    Yes, but I'm having some fun with it.

    People often see no difference between whatever runs through their mind & well-prepared, expert judgment. In effect, they do not accept the concept of expertise. I have evaluated writing at a college/university level since 1975, at four different institutions. I have taught classes in writing in a full-time position since 1984, sometimes two or three times a semester. I have graded many thousands of essays. But students have often told me the grade I put on a paper is just my opinion, & their opinion is just as valid.

    I understand what you're saying and I agree. To offer another writing-related reference, I was a journalist and a publisher. One time a girlfriend told me that her 18-year-old daughter was far more talented. That same fuckin' week my favorite living writer, who was with Esquire at the time, messaged me on Facebook and told me that he liked my short stories. So I dumped her ass.

    Understandable, MP. From the moment we're born, someone is working overtime trying to destroy us. Often it's lots of someones. They look for any perceived weakness & try to get to you using that. It took me a long time to realize I could take that supposed weakness, flip it, & turn it into my greatest asset, & that was my path to self-empowerment.

    To get back to this thread, it's clear to me you have a gift for judging. Not many have it, although I have a friend who does. Competitors seek him out & several have won their classes, & a few their shows, by listening to him. You stick to your guns & stay true to what you know to be true.
