Well, they know that I write but it has been YEARS since I shared any of my work with them. It is just too personal to show it to them, I guess, since many characters and events are based on them. And, of course, certain parts would make them go HOW DO YOU KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT THIS and honestly, I don't want to answer those questions.
And I guess then there's the aspect that they don't really read much and we are not emotionally connected. I mean, many things I write about that indeed happened we never discussed so ... it is just too intimate to share (what I'll do if I ever get published? I have no idea ... )
