Things I thought would change when I became a writer (but didn't)

FANTASY #1: I would be asked a lot of about my writing because the person asking wants to publish their book too. REALITY #1: Family and friends occasionally inquire about my books. I receive the occasional email from readers about my book. I haven't had anyone who has written a book ask about my experiences. I have had people say they've thought about writing a book, but don't have the time. I could talk for hours about my books and publishing in general, but I try to temper how much I say. Not everyone wants to listen to me endlessly gush about make-believe characters or being an author. At the same time, I need to work on self-promotion. I am never sure how to respond to, "you're a real writer? like with a book?" Uhm, yes and yes. I also believe everyone has at least one book in them. All they have to do is get it on paper. FANTASY #2: I would be recognized while out and about. REALITY#2: Nope. Hasn't happened. I am glad for that. Althoug
