Hi all, I've never sent in any queries of my writings ( I write fiction) because I'm somewhat of a "closet" writer. The only other times people have seen my writing has been in class and most of the time the professors compliment me on my stories. I've been working on a novel now (romance) and have been too afraid to show it to anyone! I've told my family some of the details of my stories but they've never actually seen the work I write in private. I feel like I have to change a lot of the content just to appeal to an audience. I seem to enjoy writing just for personal consumption. I've also been writing erotica in my spare time which I'm very apprehensive to show to anyone. Does anyone else label themselves a closet writer?
