Not safe for most workplaces. Age 18+. Scarleteen is great for under 18.
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.
