Writing for People's Eyes

A quote from Daria...

Daria: "I'm sort of thinking of submitting it somewhere. For publication."

Jane: "Oh good. When can I read it?"

Daria: "How about next leap year?"

Jane: "So, you're willing to publish it so complete strangers can read it, but you don't want to show it to your best friend?"

Daria: "Thank you for understanding."

Yes, this quote struck home... I've been there and certainly have felt that at times. Writing is hard. For some reason it is so much harder to accept criticism from people you know than from complete strangers.
