like it or not
Depth, character, maturity.
Sometimes I like a piece, or like MOST of it, but it lacks depth and character, or maturity. The only way to get it there is to keep going, and in this process the piece is sure to go through awkward stages that you “don’t like”. So… for me it’s important to withhold judgment. NOT look at it in terms of Do I Like It, but What Happens Next?
