Ok, you guys, you (read: we) really need to shut up about what matters right now. I don’t mean don’t talk about important social issues, and I definitely don’t mean don’t talk about what makes you you. What I mean is that new things are precious and tender. They need to be shielded and protected, and talking about them and sharing them with others too soon exposes these precious new things to danger. You don’t go waving a newborn around minutes after birth, right? Of course not. (Unless you’re in the reality-TV business, and then that’s a whole different conversation.) But for now, get those shields back up. If you’ve already mentioned your new projects to others and they start to ask about it, deflect the question or just say you aren’t ready to talk about it yet. And if they look at you like you’re a weirdo because you already mentioned it previously, well, you just have to wear that and remember in the future to be more discerning. Protect your babies, and listen when your ancestors speak to you, when they warn you about going public too soon.
