Ever written something you're quite proud of, but a little embarrassed to have anyone else read?


I'm in the middle of another attempt at a ?novel, and have always struggled with having someone else read my stuff (usually because it's someone I know who's doing it), but have a part or two I'm particularly happy with, but completely too embarrassed to share it with anyone!. Any suggestions on how to overcome this?

    Christin - that sounds like a good idea. And yeah, that's probably it - feeling a bit insecure - given the topic, it's more that people will assume it's abt me, and it's not.

    Thanks - am considering posting on HP just to get a feel for it...though my problem at the minute is that several scenes are out of order, so the story makes sense to me, but there are still chunks missing...soon I'll share it.

    Thanks MT. Good advice. And yeah, I was writing something last night I'm not sure id want my parents to read, and if I ever do get something in 'print' (ebook?) they'll want to read it! Haha.

    No, more what they'll think once they've read it - given it's fiction, but involves trauma - that they'll assume it's abt me....which it's not. Just don't wanna make things awkward.

    I think HP may be a good start. No1 I know personally is on here. I think it's a case of once bitten tho - had some1 critique something on another site that was quite nasty..as I was only just starting to share things I took it personal. Not now tho
