It’s Thursday, but I’m gonna take a late Road Trip. And, oh yes, this is my first Road Trip Wednesday 🙂
YA Highway asked: What’s everyone’s reaction when they find you you’re writing a book?
Turns out, not very many people know that. It’s my big secret (tra-la…oh, now you know). But there have been a few who found out.
Mum: “Sweetheart, when’s it getting published?” (like I control the publishing industry)
Dad: “Umm…right, you’re not serious, are you? Wait, are you planning to take that as a real job? I’m not opening a bank here, just so you know.”
Brother: “Wicked. Just get it done, will you..I wanna see it in print.” *punches the air* (my biggest fan, only fan)
Acquaintance #1: *blinks* “Okay.”
Acquaintance #2: “Go, girl. You can do it.”
Acquaintance #3: “You should write about the economic downturn.”
Acquaintance #4: “All right..um, will you do my homework?”
“What are you writing about?”
“I’m so proud of you.” (Said person is someone I’ve never met before. Ahem. Courtesy Mum’s gushing)
“Get me a free book when it’s published.”
“Can I have your autograph?”
“Ah…teenagers *rolls eyes*”
“Will there be a steamy sex scene?”
“Why?” (’cause you’re not satisfying me, duckhead)
