One cannot whinge about the husband when the husband is right there, reading and commenting. Even when the whinging is mild.
Also, I've been committing a whole lot of fanfic recently. I'm embarrassed to post it under my real name. This was the real barrier to the whole writing career thing for me: an inability to show any finished fiction to other human beings. Kinda brings the whole process to screeching halt if I've got a finished story clutched in my sweaty hands but am refusing to let anyone look at it. I'm hoping the whole anonymity thing will help with that.
There is also some pleasure in being able to reinvent myself. Who would I be if I didn't have to continue being myself? Though I'm not sure I'll really take advantage of that possibility.
The next step is to make this place not look so default-ugly. Then get myself hooked up to some communities. Let's get started.
