You should love your work, but you should never love it so much that you refuse to do rewrites. I've said this on the boards before. One of the reasons a writer can keep getting rejected is they send out the exact same manuscript without reworking what they've written, despite professionals (sometimes it's someone the writer has hired to edit their work, sometimes it may be a knowledgeable friend,or professor, etc, who has some understanding about the writing process) making suggestions that could help you make your work stronger. No matter who you've asked to look over your work, look at the critique with an open mind. Ask yourself would making changes suggested change the heart of what you are trying to say, or would it merely enhance and clarify what you have written? Only you can answer that question. My two cents...
Yes I can do that.
