Hi! I'm new to this forum. I just started a freelance writing class a few weeks ago and I've hit a snag. I wrote a personal essay (still a rough draft) in the vein of Brain, Child. I told a friend about it and she said she looked forward to reading it. I've been a little freaked out ever since. I can imagine sending it into a magazine where strangers are reading my essay but I feel vulnerable having someone I know read it. Am I crazy? Is this common? How do I get over this unreasonable fear?
