This site is something really important for more then one reason. Not only will it give us a fan base but it's getting me over the fear of having people read my work. For years I haven't let anyone read anything. I finally allowed my mom to read, for editing purposes, and I cringed at the thought of her reading the words that I had typed. After a while I let a friend read and she liked it but I was so full of fear when I knew that she was reading it. After I was married I let my husband read a bit but it was when I found out that Sophii (whom I met threw my husband) also wrote,and I found a person that I was able to talk to someone about this topic. I got brave enough to let her read the story that I was working on at the point, which turned out to be my completed novel, and over time I grew comfortable allowing her read my story.
When she got the idea for this site I was scared but this is something that I needed to overcome. If I want to go forth with my dream and one day, hopefully, to become a published writer I'm going to have to get used to people reading my work and also getting criticism, no matter how bad it might be because not everyone is going to like what I write. Writing is an art form and when it comes to art, it has to please the artist not the public.
