yes its always my best friend.
Rarely. I might work a character in a short story or poem and see how people react. It might change.
Yes, I share them with family members and a family friend. We are all very close and I trust their opinions.
Yes but it varies depending upon the topic, if it is professional I share it with my colleagues. Personal I have one or two trusted people I share with. If it is about my family I share it with my husband.

Of course! It's very important for me to do so.
I do. My husband reads my rough drafts, and also a friend that I've known for many years. We used to write stories together when we were twelve! Now she has her BA in Journalism and I'm working on my degree in English.

Absolutely! I want to see what's lacking, what doesn't make sense, what seems pointless, and what could be improved!
Yes. I have a small circle of people that I share them with. One of them is my son, Zach, who has a great deal of talent and insight as a writer. I'm looking forward to the chance to read some of his works sometime soon.
