When you pick up a book, are you looking to escape your daily existence?
My answer to that question is no because as a multiply marginalized person I don't see enough of people like me and my daily living to find comfort in escapism. I want to see people with more similarities to myself than I see in mainstream media.
My question and answer is related to the notion of including or avoiding things like the pandemic in fiction. Before I started writing this, I thought through the notion of setting my Nano novel for this year not only in Michigan - where I've lived my whole life - but to set it during the pandemic. It seems an incredible waste of potential not to consider how relationships are affected by a large event like a pandemic. Especially since I'll be writing an ageplay relationship- where two adults roleplay as a child and as a caregiver for that child. (I like that definition, although I cannot imagine anyone who reads my blog not knowing what it means.) I have been pondering all the delicious things that a Daddy could do under the circumstances.
For me, the idea not to share writing while composing a rough draft is totally out of character for me LOL- that is to say there will no doubt be sharing as I write this November.
'm sorry to say that I can't give you a release date yet for "Summer Heat," the anthology in which my story "Between the Pages" will be published. For now, I'm going to let you meet Joon and Adam just a bit.
Joon dragged his hand through his bushy salt-and-pepper hair. Still more pepper. Thank goodness that Koreans look young longer. “It's a good afternoon to be at the library.”
“Yes it is. Can we please go to the teen section first? I want to finish the teen science series before finding an adult book about those topics,” Adam said.
“Sure.” Joon started toward the elevator with Adam walking alongside. “Thanks for not hurrying ahead, nae salang.”
“You're so fast on your wheels that I gotta hurry to keep up.”
Once inside the elevator, Joon pushed the third floor button.
