This week I found a great blog fest. This week's topic is This week, be it good or bad, funny or sad, share with us the best response you’ve heard when you’ve told someone you’re a writer. Also, tell us, do you tell other people that you’re a writer?
It also happens to fit with my between theme.
Sometimes I don't even feel like a writer. I'm published but I don't advertise the fact. I'm not sure why? I guess I'm afraid of the reaction I will get and believe me I've got some doosies.
When I tell someone I'm a published author the reactions I get the most is "Really? What have you published or do you make a lot of money. How come I've never heard of you?"
I hate everyone of those reactions. I now tend to stay quite about what I love to do. So, to answer the question I've become cautious in who I tell. It's become like a secret I sweep under the rug or hide in the closet.
