As you know, I'm an aspiring new author with a few novels and short stories at various stages of completion. I think I'm going through a phase right now and I'm not sure if my writing is improving or suffering due to it and I want to see what he thinks before I share them with others. This is also the first time that I'm really exploring the short story avenue of writing so maybe that's contributing to this phase also. So today I typed up two of my short stories so I can have my husband read them. ( I am the type of person who likes to write the first draft by hand and edit it as I type it up). He is usually my first filter before I send my stories out into the world. He's one of the few people I trust with my early drafts and I value his opinions and instincts, almost more than I trust my own, but we won't talk about that right now. Do you other writers share your stories with your significant others? Or do you have someone else that you share your writing with? I'd love to hear about your writing experiences.
