Interrupted writing

I just remembered one of the things I hated about workshopping in undergrad. I don’t remember exactly what I did to avoid it in MFA school—grew up a few years, went through workshops before, whatever—but it was when I’d get interrupted by a comment. Or even the response in general. It could completely throw me off track. I was working on this one story and I showed it to the instructor before it was finished and it basically killed the story. I gave up on it only to recycle details since.
