Another thing you do is verbalize your fears into permanence.

You can't take the vitality out of writing in order to stave off criticism.
You just write dead then. And get criticized. And it's torture to write.
And you avoid doing it. Because you're putting a gag on.

Stop worrying about melodrama...... black drama isn't it literally? Aren't
you the black haired black clothed dramatic performer? So what's wrong with
that? I'd like to see out of those eyes.
