Nosy

“But I just meant to ask… This story you wrote last year and gave me to read, did you eventually get it published? Well, I was just wondering…”

Ouch. Just because you were wondering, no, I didn’t get it published, as in “did you remember to get the laundry washed?”. Must have slipped from my to-do list. People who don’t have a clue about publishing get on my nerves. Sigh. Any better answer around here than “None of your [fill in the blank] business”?

  1. Ouch is right. How about, “No, I’m saving it for my debut story collection.” I unfortunately have no witty response for when they ask, “Oh, and when will that be published?”
