All a Matter of Opinion?

The idea that all critiques are subjective isn't accurate.

The craft of writing has certain requirements, and if those requirements aren't met, the error is as obvious as a math mistake for a critiquer with a good eye for craft.

These mistakes can be everything from grammar to novel structure.

Perpetuating the idea that everything is subjective in writing enables new writers to ignore accurate criticism and blame everyone else when they are told something in their book doesn't work.
