Writing is something that I've loved doing since I was basically able to, but it's something that I feel quite private about. This sounds ludicrous because, after all, writing a novel is meant to be shared with others, but I much prefer to share my writing with people I don't know, rather than those I know the best.
I suppose writing is something that comes from the very depth of myself. So have I have a problem with sharing this with others around me and risk showing what's really going on inside. Does this sound weird? I know that I'm going to have to get over this fear, because if I want to make anything with my writing, I will have to expose this part of who I am.
Do any writers out there feel the same? Do you share your work with family members? Are they supportive or disregard what you do?
