My grandmother was a great proponent of hand washing. It was a refrain often heard emanating from her kitchen. She wanted children to be clean. I object to the idea that writing is something shameful. But there can be an air of contempt and disbelief when you reveal you are a writer. I admit I am cautious when I first divulge my propensity for writing.
How do you present your writing? Do you proclaim it from the mountaintops, or hide a dirty little secret?
Keep on writing.
