Follow Your Heart, Not Your Head.
One piece of advice I received recently from an editor (with an invitation to rewrite and re-submit - Yay!) was not to force a rewrite. Take my time with it and allow it to happen organically, just as the original piece happened.
I've tried writing pieces in ways I think they should be written (Including more similes and inner dialogue - just because I think I should be writing more) and then, without fail, my readers/critiquers always seem to pick those parts as not working.
One thing I've learned is to trust your own instincts. And go with them.
I suppose that applies to a lot more than writing too.
