Random Thought #2

My second Random Thought seems a little more writerly focused.  Yay!

Why do I have such a difficult time saying "my writing"?  I always use some kind of euphemism, like "creative pursuits" or a similar phrase.  Sometimes I say, "my work", because that's also what it is.  I never say, "my book".  I think that sounds too presumptuous, as though I assume it will be a published book when I'm finished.  When you're working on your writing, is that what you call it when talking about it with others?
