Inside the mind of a fantasy writer

I’m an Author….

I read a FB post from an author the other day and it really bothered me. I won’t use a name, but it was a fellow SCP author (my former publisher), so I know the author well.

This author was talking about being out somewhere, and, in casual conversation with a stranger, the subject of “where do you work” came up. The author, of course, said, “I’m an author” because, it’s true, that’s their job. The other person laughed at the answer and said, “What’s your real job”?

Whether you’re an author, musician, artist, etc (anyone in a creative-type career path), you can probably relate to this kind of thing happening.

Has anyone else had an experience like this? And how did you handle it?
