March 2 question – Have you ever been conflicted about writing a story or adding a scene to a story? How did you decide to write it or not?
Jayden: Absolutely. I write a lot of smut (pretty much exclusively smut) and over the years, my kinks have gotten less mainstream. It’s sexy as hell to me to write smut about golden showers, ass to mouth, etc. but sometimes I question if I should publish those scenes. I write for myself, but I like to share. So in the end, I write what I like and hope that others like it (or will skip over the ones they don’t like).
Richard: I think all writers are conflicted about something at some point or another. For me, the answer is almost always, “right it now, edit it later.” Usually I can tell part way through the scene if it’ll be a keeper or not.
One thought on “The Insecure Writer’s Support Group #IWSG”
Did Richard make a joke there? “right” for write, because you can edit later? Nice one.
I’m kicking around a slightly more erotic idea for a short story, but I don’t know if I’ll use it. It’s kind of Handmaiden’s Tale meets Planet of the Apes.
Hope you’re having a great day! My latest blog post has my theme for the April #AtoZChallenge (I’m writing speculative fiction and looking for prompts).
At Operation Awesome we have the #PassOrPages query contest going on (friends or enemies to lovers Romance).
Looks like I’ll be very busy the next few weeks!
