In your Protagonist experience, don't fall in love with your own writing. Instead, fall in love with the writing of others.
Watch how they turn a phrase.
When someone's writing seems to flow, explore why.
Become enchanted with another's sentence style and then practice it in your own writing.
Your most helpful critical input will be found in your positive gleaning from the writing of others.
Here on Protagonize, we are here not to publish our work, we are here to workshop the writing process.
Be flexible. Venture outside your primary genre. Learn from each other.
And in the end ... write and read for the sheer joy of it ... let's all become better writers than before we came.
