As I indicated in my last post – I'm starting a new project. I finished the first chapter and decided to get my boys to read it. In the past they haven't shown much interest in reading published books let alone my books.
After they read the first chapter, they asked what the book was about so I read them my very rough query and then the ideas started to fly.
For an hour I listened to them make suggestions. You should do this. That would be so cool if you did that. Maybe this would help the plot. Some of their ideas were good, but a lot were clichéd.
So I've decided to keep my chapters to myself until I've finished my whole first draft.
What about you? When do you start to share your work with family or do you?
