About Nell, Writing Challenge

Day 13 #30DayWritingChallenge

What are you excited about?

I’m super excited about the upcoming release of my short story Unconditionally, of course!

And I need to make a decision. I’ve not told anyone back in Sweden (except for my daughter and her boyfriend) that I’ll be a published author soon, I haven’t even told them that I write. I’ve wanted to keep it a secret, probably because I doubted my ability, but also because I wanted something that was just mine for a while.

But now that I’m actually going to be published (which must mean I don’t suck, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I’m thinking about telling them. It feels like it’s too big to keep to myself, and when people ask how I spend my days I can’t tell them. They think I’m a first class slacker, that spend my days by the pool, when it couldn’t be further from the truth.

And also: there’s…you know…two boys having S-E-X in my story. Do I really want my mom to read about that? (The risk isn’t very bigย because she’s not great at English. But she would probably try to read it at least…and then what? ๐Ÿ™‚ )

I don’t know, what do you think?
