I wrote a short story a while back. It makes enormous sense to me but I can't decide if it would make as much sense to others. In my mind I imagine literary giants (mainly E.M.Forster for some reason) scoffing at my amateurish attempt. I don't know what to do with it, nor do I know if it's O.K.to have it published. The story does end rather abruptly but that's how I have seen most great stories end like: much sense is telescoped into a few lines. But I can't decide if that holds for my story too.
My question then is how does one handle such self-doubts? Also what should one do with such first drafts? Proceed with them, or perhaps burn them?
