When I finished my rough draft, I immediately printed it out (over 90 pages) and brought it with me everywhere I went. It quickly became busted up, its papers crumpled and folded. 
This is a pretty accurate representation of what it's like to release your story into the world. 
On your computer, your novel may be crisp and pristine, but once you begin sharing it with others, you realize all the flaws, marks, and imperfections that it contains. I've started giving snippets of my novel to others, and honestly, it isn't easy. But we have to be brave enough to share our stories, because that's the only way we'll see them clearly.
And then, we will write them again. Because writers rewrite. ✍🏻✍🏼✍🏽✍🏾✍🏿
