Someone online quoted my message and then went on to say "I've read some of your work and you're a fantastic storyteller."
No, that's not why I'm embarrassed. I appreciate that kind of comments and they make me feel good.
The reason why I'm embarrassed is that I wrote back, said thanks, and then I realized, she wasn't addressing me! She wasn't saying *I* was a fantastic storyteller, but someone else.
I wish I had a hole to crawl into now.
