The chapter discusses the author’s experiences of dealing with supervisor feedback and offers some thoughts, ideas, hints and tips on how the student can turn this sometimes negative experience into something positive and useful. Writing is a skilled craft, and it can take time, patience and practice to produce work of reasonable quality. The chapter contains three sections. First, it sets out the author’s personal experiences of dealing with supervisor feedback at the beginning of the PhD studies. Second, experiences during the middle and later stage of the doctoral research are recalled. Finally, it presents the advice that the author would have liked to receive when first embarking on her doctoral adventures, in the hope this is useful for students today.
