I've got a secret.
I'm a fake... a fraud... a phony. I'm about as legit as a $3 bill. I'm pretending to be a writer, but the truth is.. I have no idea what I'm doing.
I play along, I read books on writing, I spend my time daydreaming of story ideas and then I write them down and do little outlines, I even attend some writing conferences.. but it's only to keep up appearances. I've been faking it for around 3 years now, and I've even won a few writing competitions.
It all lends credibility to my charade. I'm really starting to get the hang of it.
Just do me a favor.. keep this under your hat. Last thing I need is for my wife to find out that all that time I spend plunking away on my computer is just me pretending I'm something I'm not.
