At what point in the writing process is it a good idea to allow someone to give feedback on my novel?

Depends on when in the writing process you begin to feel you need feedback.

Most of the time, writes want feedback after they’ve completed their first draft and before they start ‘tweaking’ their story. That way, they think, any big flaws will be caught by their readers before they put too much effort into the re-write.

Sometimes it works that way, sometimes it doesn’t.

I’ve never had readers read my work beyond my two daughters when I first started writing. They were brutal so maybe that’s why I’ve avoided readers ever since. I’m chicken.
