Apart from my husband not one of my family or friends know that i am writing. I fear ridicule , and if i let them read some of my work negative comments that would destroy my struggling writing confidence.
My husband knows i write but i keep my written word locked away in a filing cabinet. If he read any of my work at present i would feel embarrassed. Funny, no one even knows i have a blog.
But in maybe a years time when i have more work under my belt i am proud of how do I "come out" to people? How do I take that first step? I think many of my friends, apart from one, will be surprised. But i hope supportive.
Today I found a posting on Author Elizabeth Spann Craig blog called "Subtle Ways to Come Out of the Writing Closet". I am glad that i am not alone in my need to closet away my fragile dream. Please take a look http://mysterywritingismurder.blogspot.com/2011/05/subtle-ways-to-come-out-of-writing.html
