I tend to keep my writing habit quiet for two reasons:
1. People's first question is: Write anything I know?
They just assume it's published. A lot of people have no idea how complicated it is to get published. It's not easy. Then again, I'm preaching to the choir if you're reading this.
2. I have a strange enough "main" career that's complicated enough to explain without having to add in the whole writing thing.
I have one year left until I'm an official high school agriculture teacher. That takes some explaining like...why yes, I am a girl....I'll teach shop, welding, mechanics, horticulture, floral design, animal science, business, and who know's what else....that's right, high school kids....(and my favorite) no, I'm not crazy.
I've got a feeling that until my book hits shelves I won't tell the everyday person. My family knows, my closest friends know, and well everyone else....they can wait. (Except for you, you're special.)
I'm actually considering just getting a new wardrobe...what do you all think? It might work?
Have a great weekend!
P.S. I have a super awesome week planned for next week! Including an interview with one of my critique partners who JUST SIGNED WITH AN AGENT!!! Be sure to check back! See ya then!
