My partner knows I like to write but has no idea how passionate I am about it. My mum knows I write when I’m feeling down to help me process my feelings, but beyond that, nothing. I would like to tell her but she’ll want to read my stuff before I’m finished with it and will probably get upset if I don’t show her. A few times when I was a teenager she looked at stuff I was writing without asking permission, that I wouldn’t have wanted to show anyone. She complimented me on it but it was still embarrassing. I’ll tell her once my WIP is finished and well edited. Nobody else in my life knows, not yet anyway. I kind of like it that way though, I don’t feel like anyone has any expectations for my writing so there’s no pressure.
