    I no longer share my writing with my family. I had too many "Is that what you really think of me/him/her/them?" questions, when the character(s) they are referring to are in no way connected to anyone. I had too many "That's not how I remember it happening" conversations when the scene had nothing to do with the event the person thinks inspired it. On top of that, despite a couple members of the family being well read and good with grammar, I didn't find their input particularly helpful.

    So no, I don't share my work with family or friends anymore. Nor do I owe them that. Sorry to sound so cold, but it simply works better for me that way.
