It’s Wednesday, so I’m over at the Confabulator Cafe. This week, they asked us how we felt about our moms (or other family members) reading our work, and whether it holds us back from certain subjects. Now, taken in a literal sense, no, I’m not at all worried about my mom’s reaction. She likes my stuff, and I don’t hold back for fear of embarrassing or offending her with shocking bits.
But that wasn’t really the point of the question. Moms aren’t the only ones we might have to worry about. Mind you, if you read my Trauma Llama story the other day, you’ll know I’m not too worried about making an ass out of myself or writing about sensitive stuff.
But everybody has something or someone they worry about when they’re writing. So, head on over to the Cafe, if you’re interested, and read my take on this quandary: Write Like Your Mom’s Not Watching.
If you’re on Twitter, keep an eye out. I’ve started doing #monstertrivia again. Did you know that Yeti get hives from chocolate? Do you know what to do if you stumble across a selkie’s seal skin? Be more informed about the world of the Hidden. Wow your friends with your expertise. Follow @rlnaquin and have all your monster questions answered.
Have a lovely rest of the week. I’ll check back with you Friday to see how you’re doing.
See you real soon!
