Sometimes the first step is the hardest. The anxiety of it all rests in one little button. But once you click "send", it's over. One simple little movement and there's no turning back.
Sent off the first three chapters of one of my two current projects to a few friends and my sister in law (is is amazing and helping me with editing). Have also sent some e-mails to others fishing around for other possible pre-readers. I feel the more honest opinions I can get, the better writer I'll be.
Now I just sit and wait - anxiously, impatiently, fearful - for their response.
Currently listening too...the dryer and heater.
