I’d love to share my stories with friends and family! I always write short stories for my friends and when I was younger, I always wrote and/or drew stories, which my family loved. I don’t think it would be a surprise for them.
However, I’m just scared of judgement. I always put some personal things in my stories, like some jokes or my interests in music and TV shows, and I don’t know if they’ll appreciate it.
I actually asked a couple days ago to one of my friends that reads Episode too sometimes if she would be interested in reading my story. It was late and she was calling her boyfriend, so she just gave a short, abrupt “yes” answer which made me regret it. I haven’t come up with it again, although I know she’s supportive and will not judge me.
My second friend finds Episode stupid and she doesn’t really read my stories anymore when I ask in the groupchat , so no chance.
My third friend is supportive and I think she would have given it a chance, even if she doesn’t read Episode.
I think my mom will enjoy it, because she has always loved my stories and other creative work.
