For me it is my husband Tony!
He gets to be the person I run everything by. He helps me brainstorm ideas and opens my eyes up to things and nuances that I wouldn’t have seen without sharing it with him.
I used to share it with my mom too. She was a great sounding board. She was just like me and loved to read. So she understood the nuances and writing details and could really point me out when I was off base and put me high on a pedestal when I wrote something she enjoyed. She truly enjoyed helping me with my writing and it is now that I really miss her the most. I could use her input and guidance.
I never finished a story for her. I had all kinds of open ended stories out there and she kept asking for an ending and somewhere along the way I lost my muse and quit writing.
She has been gone since September and now sometimes I feel a little guilty that my muse is back too late. But then when I start to feel that way something inside me says that she is up in Heaven pushing me still. And maybe that is why my muse is back.
It is going to be different this time around and I am going to finish my story, uh um Novel.
I almost have it finished in my mind but it just isn’t all down on paper yet.
In the meantime hopefully Tony will not get tired of me filling his ear with ideas and thoughts!
So who do you share your WIP’s with? Do you put it out here on the World Wide Web or do you have someone close to you that helps you out.
I guess I am paranoid of putting my story out here on the web.
I apparently think it is worth stealing! 🙂
