I have an inner war inside me. I weaver back and forth constantly. To have people read my WIP or not to have people read my WIP, that is my question.
I have a few people who have been reading it from the beginning. They are close friends who's opinions I value. The only question is... do they give me an honest opinion? (To my friends who read my story... I love you! :) Part of me wants someone who I don't know to read it, then I am sure I will get an honest opinion. Then, I have to look at them, what if they don't like it? Is it they don't like my story because it's bad or do they just not like my type of writing. Besides, why am I worrying about it now, I'm only about half way done. Part of me says, "You should have someone read it to see how it flows, in case you have to change anything." Then the other part says, "Don't have anyone else read it till you're done." Can you see my dilemma?
How do you feel about this? Do you have people you know read it or strangers? Do you have people read your WIP while you're writing it or are you super secret and keep it under lock and key until you're done?
