In an excellent post on why he'd refuse to critique your work John Scalzi writes:
For God's sake, if you're going to hand your work over for critique, finish the damn thing first. Even if it's broke, you can fix it.
Which reminds me of Del's rule about software.
"I would rather fix a program that doesn't work than write a new program to do the same job."
Del felt that the start was the hardest part. What errors in that that prevented the program working could be found and corrected more readily than a new program could be conceived, outlined, and composed.
