I have told very few people that I am writing a book. Some people I’ve told face to face and they sometimes say “that’s nice”, but most always change the subject. Most of my immediate family knows. When is the appropriate time to tell my other friends and acquaintances? What am I hoping to gain by telling them? Do I want something from them? Is that greedy? /sigh
I guess it is ok to bring up if asked “whatcha been up to?” Maybe when I get close to publishing I can tell my Facebook family? How have other people dealt with this?
