Ok, here's the deal. My friend and I have been writing a story for a while. I've come here a couple times for information and you all have been great to me. We are at the point where we are about halfway finished with the writing and the plot is finished. Our friends are starting to get really excited about it -- I think mainly because they see how excited we are. We want to start letting our closest friends read it and send it to a couple of people we trust will give us a good, honest opinion on what they think of it. As I've mentioned before, there's no doubt in the quality of the work, but we honestly feel that it doesn't have an audience to get published. So, we want to get our friends opinions on how much they like it and a couple professional opinions on whether we have a chance to get published. That being said, I've read that you really have to be careful about this type of situation. So, is it a bad idea to let people read it? How worried do we have to be about sending out what we have so far? Is there anything we might need to know that we are unaware of at this point? Thank you all so much.
