Just a thing

“What are you writing?”

“Just a… thing? A story.”

“Oh?”

“Yeah. Just a story thing.”

 

At what point do you dare answer “I’m working on a novel”? I am still not there. Of course I know that’s what I’m working on, but saying it out loud freaks me out. If I say it out loud, will I ruin it? Will I jinx it, making the whole project fail and my inspiration fade? I am afraid that if I say it there will be expectations. What if the expectations crush me?

Just a story thing. For now that’s what I respond when asked. We’ll see when that will change.
