The problem is that people can’t tell fiction from reality. How can a writer write only about the things she’s experienced firsthand? Don’t you agree? There’s always those who ask: “Is this your personal experience? How do you describe it so vividly?” So foolish! You must have gotten so many silly questions like that. Don’t even bother to respond to that kind of questions. It’ll only make you feel bad. I also lashed out at my husband that day. His background is in engineering, so he knows virtually nothing outside the field. That’s why he says things like that. I apologize on his behalf.
