Katie: While I don't call attention to my disability, I will answer questions about mine. I often get comments like, "You don't act blind." How is a blind person supposed to act? I've submitted to agents without telling them I'm blind. If they show interest, that's when I tell them. This is to protect myself... if they ask me to do something I don't normally do, I don't want them surprised when I ask for an alternative. But I've found announcing myself as disabled before they get to "know" me, can be a put-off.
