Do you tell people you write? That you’re a writer? That you’re an author, even?
Well, then let the rest of us in on the secret! How do you own up to ‘being a writer’ without…well…this:
I’m not good at it. This year my youngest will be starting school and people are full of advice and curiosity about what I’ll be doing with all my “free time”.
Pfft, as if.
The easiest and truest response would be to say that I’ll be working on my business, that of writing. But I don’t because quite frankly it makes me feel…like a fraud.
So, if you have the secret then be a mate and let the rest of us know what it is.
