My peers are questioning my narrative strategy. They say that my point of view is displaced in certain instances. But who is to say that there is a point of view at all? And why would I trust others whose writing I had no desire to emulate?

The difficulty is that I expected nearly every comment I received. That is a good sign for me. It shows that I was precisely aware of what it is that I was trying to accomplish. It is a bad sign insofar as it is unclear how I am to revise my fiction with their remarks.

Follow the key signature. Do not play wrong notes.
