Maturity and Intimacy in Writing

I admit, yes, my story isn't written for anyone under ten or even twelve I would say, unless parents allow. Mainly because of some more mature language and some intimate moments. But that is just my opinion. If I had the option to take these things out though to widen the age range would I? No, probably not.

Mature language is a fact of life. Walk outside now and you will probably hear at least one curse word come out of someone's mouth, or even your own. Back then, it wasn't much different. I don't want to write a story and make it completely secluded from some reality. Death, love, language, matters of the heart, are all things that we can face in real life, and I want my characters to experience at least some of those things. That way, more people can relate to the characters.

Intimacy is another part of writing that can add to the realism if done correctly. None of my writing goes so far that it would be consider inappropriate for the younger readers, but there is intimate moments including kissing and or let's say displays of affection? I have put this into my stories for a couple reasons. The reality/realism is one. But otherwise, it shows the true love between the characters, Nevar and Ara for example. It shows how deep and real their relationship is. Make sense? Let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer :)


Love,

p.s. Rewrite is coming along great might I add!

Things are Changing

With the school year coming to a wrap, time seems to retract from its lengthened state so much so that the days are clearly flying by. A lot has happened as of late, and a lot is still to come. Outside of writing, About a month ago now, I was hospitalized again for my ankle injury after getting cellulitis and a staph infect in my ankle joint from the first surgery I had back in January. It was all quite a debacle, but now I must say my ankle is feeling better than ever, and get more and more excited as my strength returns. Recently I also purchased my first car (well a truck), so I came home this last weekend to clean and repair a bit in preparation for my road trip to Montana for the summer! Last summer was a remarkable experience for me living near and working in Virginia City, and I keep counting down the days until I get to return this year. Not only did I get to experience a lot of memorable things while I was there, but I also got a lot of writing done including working on stori…

Jumping off the Deep End

Well, for those of you reading on here, this news may be coming out of the deep blue, but today is officially publishing day for the new edition of The King's Daughter! Published this evening, about ten minutes ago, (so it will take a little time to actually show up online... but), my book will be available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble in print, and will be available as an e-book within a few weeks when I finish up the formatting! I finally thought it about time to stop fussing over the small things (because I knew it'll never be "done" to me if I keep trying to fix minute details). I'm excited to share this newer version with my family and friends who've always shown such great love and support towards my writing over the years! I've come a long way, but know that I still have a long way to go, and The King's Daughter is just my first stop on that long journey! Publishing this will allow me the time now to give more of my time and attention to wor…

A Moment of Realization

I figured it’s been a month, so it’s about time I remove you from the dark. To be perfectly honest, I could’ve written sooner, but in the past month I’ve been settling in at uni, so writing hasn’t quite been my main focus. I know! I’ve wondered to myself too how I could have possibly gone a full month without touching a single work of writing, but it’s a lot easier when you have something else occupying your time. I admit that my biggest fear coming to school was what others told me- I wouldn’t find the time again to write my stories. I’ll be doggy-paddling neck deep in water, turning in circles as I constantly try to stay afloat. If I’m really in that deep, that no, I wouldn’t ever find time to write for fun again. However, if these first four weeks of school have told me anything, it’s quite the opposite- at least for the time being. While still in search of a job where I can make a decent pay for groceries and savings, I have found that I have a lot more free time than I ever thoug…
