Goodreads asked Danica Robertson:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Danica Robertson I really understand how personal and precious your story is to you, but at some point you have to open yourself up to suggestions and yes, even criticism. Don't lose focus on the big picture, that one paragraph may be brilliant, but it might also do nothing to enhance you overall novel. The red pen is your friend.
