One of the reasons I'm not telling people that I have started to write a novel is so that I can show off once I'm finished. People who have completed a novel, what are some of the reactions you received when you revealed what you'd been doing alone in your room the past month? Were you proud announcing your work, or did you continue to keep it under wraps? Example Reaction: Charlie: I wrote a musical. It's pretty damn good, OK? I wanna put it on. Mac: Right, what's your angle? Charlie: I don't have one. Dee: Yeah, whose—whose face are we shoving this musical in? Charlie: You don't shove a musical in someone's face. What are you talking about? Mac: Right, but who versus? Who are we doing it versus?
