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?
sort by best latest
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.
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
I'm Anita a new hubber. Doesn't it make you mad that your husband doesn't read you post? I get really angry because it makes me feel like I have no support
Anita Powell, I sent you a private e-mail. Go to your profile page and you should have a # 1 by your name. This indicates an e-mail. To reply to me, go to my profile and click on fan mail. A prompt will pop

Hi DJ I don't have the1,on my profile page maybe send again. Are we allowed to give out our email addresses?
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.
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.
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.
