I did! Well, for the most part anyway!
It was a very painful thing for me, but I have finally done it!
I stopped talking about writing.
You see, it took me a while, but I began to notice that non-writers would go into a kind of bored trance whenever you mention anything about what you are writing.
It doesn’t matter what you start talking about, whether it’s; a new plot you are working on, or a cool character you are developing, or even a fantastic scene you have placed your characters in as part a story you’re hoping to publish.
They just don’t care, these non-writing masses we are surrounded by each day when we go out and mix with people. Once I had realized this, I decided that they were beneath me and I stopped talking to them about my writing.
And OMG, my fellow writers?
They are all so engrossed in their writings that it quickly became obvious they all believed their works are far more interesting than mine.
