No, not really.
I'm participating in a blog fest over at Juliana L. Brandt's blog:
The question this week is: Do you tell people you are a writer? And when you do, what reaction do you get?
Truth is I really don't tell people I am. My sister knows because she watches me toil away at my laptop. My parents and cousins know because I have to tell someone about the partial/full requests, good/bad feedback. But aside from that, I don't really tell anyone.
The longest conversation I've had about my writing with either A) someone who's not a writer themselves or B) one of the above mentioned people, went kind of like this.
Me: What's up?
Them: All this cool stuff (lists cool stuff). How about you?
Me: Oh you know, work, running, soccer, singing in the band, etc. Oh...and writing a book.
Them: Like a book, book?
Them: Cool. You'll have to tell me when it's out so I can buy it.
I appreciate the confidence :)
How about you? Do you tell people you're a writer? If you're not a writer, are there things you've given up telling people?
