So, I'm kind of seeing someone and meeting their parents for the first time. If that's not enough, the person I'm seeing has told them all about how I'm a writer. While I feel like a complete fraud on the inside, how can I come out looking good without lying assuming the topic comes up? It's been a while since I've met anyone parents. And I think the person I'm dating thinks I'm far more brilliant than I am. Has your writing ever come up in a situation like this? What did you say about it? Also, I'm trying to figure out just how it might come up. The parents are big readers. Don't even own a t.v. I'm pretty nervous about the whole ordeal.
