When I told someone that I'm a writer he asked (slightly sarcastically I thought), "Going to be the next JK Rowling are you?"
"No," I said. "I write for adults." (this was before The Casual Vacancy hype.)
Suddenly he seemed much more interested. I don't think he was thinking of My Weekly fiction, more the sort of thing that might win this competition. I didn't explain, just said I had some research to do so he'd have to excuse me.
I don't write erotica, but thought I'd have a go at creating a fruity character. Do you like him?
