Dare to Share Your Writing

A critical steps to take as a developing writer is to share your writing with others. Those others might be writers, they might be friends, or they might be family members.

    Denis, this is such good advice. The first few times you share your work are so hard, and then you start to look forward to the feedback. Firemen show their work every day; so do teachers, and administrative assistants and shoe salesmen and gardeners and computer programmers. Isn’t our work worthy of being shown?

    It does take courage, doesn’t it, to share writing? I get a group of friends together regularly and we share writing (and visual art). I always have a moment when I ask myself if my piece its ready. Inevitably, if a part of a memoir is not finished, it will stand out–and for that I must be grateful. Then, back to the computer to re-write.
