What will be will be

Thanks to everyone who gave me advice on what I should do about my facebook issue and I just wanted to update you on what I had decided to do.
Basically it is in the title of the post. I have decided that so what if certain family members get to "meet" some of the writers I know? So what if they find out that I keep a skeleton called Writing in the wardrobe? It's part of who I am and what makes me the person I am and I should embrace that.
I'm not going to announce over the family airwaves that "I write this that and t'other and have been published here there or wherever" but if it should come out over time then so be it. I think that the reaction from some will be why do you bother and what do you think you're going to achieve by it but you know what that's fine. I bother because I enjoy it and I'll achieve whatever I can.

I've mixed writing with non writing friends and its been received well. People are encouraging and are v. impressed with it!

I guess I need to give those that don't know about my writing successes so far the chance to be impressed. Like I said, I'm not going to make a big deal about it but if it comes out so be it.

I would hope that the people who care about you will be impressed and supportive no matter what, but I admit I do find it easier to talk about and discuss my writing with other writerly sorts and on the blog than I do with people I know in 'real life'!

Good luck with it - if you do join you can add me as a friend and tempt me on there!

Himself understands why I write but probably wouldn't choose to read what I write. That's okay because I wouldn't choose to read half of what he does. I just don't think the rest of them would "get" it.
I haven't invited any friends yet karen but I'm heading off over there right now to invite you.
