Yes, it’s scary, but it’s scary for anyone to share their work. Teachers are in front of people with their work, so are doctors and nurses – the results of welders or builders’ work, car mechanics, etc. are in plain view every day.
Some of the feedback they get is rather personal, to say the least. Everybody gets feedback for their work, gets criticised.
Being published is an achievement and an opportunity to get feedback. I’m grateful for that. This list is my work as a writer, not as a journalist or marketing specialist.
