Come in quickly and close the door softly behind you. You’ve found the hideaway of a secret writer.
Jokes aside-- hello!
I’m “new” here (returned after a 6-or-so year hiatus) and am looking for some kindred spirits, and maybe some answers. As you may have guessed from the intro- or not, maybe you’re mostly confused…so am I…-I’m secretly a writer. You may ask yourself,
“How? Why? What?”
To which I respond,
“Settle down, I’m still confused from before.”
I know I said jokes aside. I lied. Jokes all around.
Essentially, I’m currently writing a book unbeknownst to everyone in my “real” life. It may not seem like much considering the book isn’t done…or published…but… shut up,because it’s a big deal to me. I’m wondering if anyone else out here is like me, clicking away on their ancient laptop in the secrecy of their empty house? Anyone else afraid to admit that they’re genuinely trying to be published? Seems like a weird thing to be embarrassed by, I know. I need more confidence, I know.
Stop judging me and answer the question.
