Brainstorming Genius or Critique Partner Goddess?

Last night I brain-storm chatted with Xandra and it was deemed that I was the Goddess of Brainstorming...eh...I'll take the compliment but really, it's just a matter of perspective.

I can spend hours hitting my head against the table and not figure out what I hate...what is making me insane...about a chapter. I can send it to her and BAM she doesn't pull any punches. She'll call shit shit and if it's good she'll tell me to stop being critical. And I think when she gives me a dilemma summary, I know her WIP well enough to give her solid advice.

Isn't it funny how a writer can be too attached to their own work to see what is right in front of them?
