I'm busy writing an article at the moment. My daughter was with me, looking over my shoulder and saw a copy of Writing Magazine on the computer. She pointed at the top article on the cover.
"Mum," she said, "you should try and get your article there on the cover."
"That is my article," I said, "I wrote it a few months ago."
Without missing a beat, she pointed at the photo of the writer on the front cover. "You should become so famous they take a photo of *you* and put you on the front!"
Do you get the same underwhelmed reaction from family members?
