How to Overcome the Fear of Letting Others Read Your Novel

It's terrifying letting strangers review your work. Fears of, "Will they hate it?" prevail. But these are only growing pains. You have to not care if strangers don't like it because that stranger's job IS to tell you what they think is broken in it. You can't fix what you don't know is broken. Once they tell you what they think is broken, fix it, and send it out to another reader who will point out other broken things, and then you fix those, and repeat steps 1 and 2.
