Check out Share Your Work on this forum. Read through fifteen pieces and ask yourself if you have any desire to steal *any* of them.

I suppose it could happen, but as far as I know, the risk is teeny tiny.

You can also find a local writing group. This is how I eased in to what you are looking at. I took excerpts similar to my 'baby' but with different ideas, ones I didn't care about, and got feedback on those pieces. Over time I learned to trust these critique partners.

They are now good friends.
