Proposal: a ban on trash-talking your work

 Here's an idea nicked off a poetry workshop I went to once: how about a moratorium on presenting one's work with any sort of apology/self-deprecating remarks/insults? I mean, I am the sovereign queen of this, but I think it'd be cooler if we shared our writing without doing the usual "I know this is rubbish and will burn your eyes out with it's dreadfulness..." dance before we do. What do you lovelies think?

Yes. Good plan. It's such a weird defense mechanism. "Don't bother criticising, I've already said it sucks" can really deprive yourself of helpful, constructive advice.
