Long time listener, first time caller I've been writing on and off for a couple of years now, joined some creative writing groups, and built up my confidence a little, but I can't seem to get over the fear of showing other people my work, and getting it out there. Those who have seen it, have said it's great and that I should continue getting it out there, but there's always something that seems to stop me. I was just wondering how you all got past that initial hurdle? Did you show it to family and friends first? Did you put some of your writing out online? Did you go down a different route?
