I'm approaching 20,000 words in a new novel first draft. I'm just wondering if it is worth showing to someone to see if it holds together as a story and if it compels readers to want more. But I don't know who to show it to. Friends will be too shy to be negative, a fellow writer may be the only other I could show it to, and I can't imagine who else might be a candidate. Or should I forget it and just keep it under wraps until complete?
