txwatson asked: To the anon whose feelings are hurt because their friends don’t read their work: I have that problem, too. For a long time, it meant I went without critique, and I think I progressed more slowly than I could have. Then I had a professor who would read my stuff, and that made a huge difference. Recently, I’ve been participating in Critters, an online writing workshop that asks its members for weekly reviews of short stories or novel-parts. Maybe that will help you? Best of luck!
Thank you, lovely!
