Next week my writing group meets. And, though we've been together for several years now and they are an awesome inspiring group, I still find it difficult to submit excerpts to them. Despite the mutual understanding that its a rough draft, its still difficult to share the words I've labored over. Its the fear of showing my work.
Yet, I know there are no better cheerleaders in my corner than my writing group! So I will clamp down the fear (and try to remember that I am my harshest critic) and hit send on that revised chapter this week. Because, truth told, everyone needs cheerleaders!
Are you fearful of showing your work? If so, how do you snuff it out to gain the benefit of your cheerleaders?
