She is in another country and she is coming back next week. I am supposed to go over to her house and I am so excited!!! But the thing is, she wants to read my essay that we had to write over the summer. I do not want her to read it and I dont know how to tell her that without sounding harsh or rude. I dont want her to think that I dont want her stealing my ideas. Thanks :)

I'd go with motherredcap, just explain you're embarrassed, the quality of what you'd written so far isn't up to snuff and you are working hard on revising it. Tell her a problem area, ask her for her advice.

Just tell her the truth. I don't see anything wrong with just saying what you said. "I don't want you to read it." Maybe you can add a "I'm sorry...."

It's all in how you say it. Your tone of voice.

A friend should understand and not take it personally.
