I was thinking about this the other day while I was writing. Characters hide, too, don't they? From their emotions, from other characters, from the bad guys. Pretty much from the same things real people hide from. As with real people, some of them are better at it than others. And therein lies a good source of conflict. Fiction falls flat without conflict. Anything that provides it is a good addition to a writer's toolbox, so hooray for hiding!
Okay, 'fess up. What are you hiding from? Do tell!*
For the writers among you, are your characters hiding from anything?
*Unless it's from me. Then just make some sh!t up instead.
