There’s a moment when I’m writing and something sinister comes to my mind about the story.
I could do something really messed up to the characters and they have to deal with it. Or, I could not and it won’t be as much fun.
It’s in this part of the story that I realize I can write some twisted things if I just get past the perceived judgment of others
Most of my family wouldn’t read what I write anyway. They don’t like horror or don’t read books.
I used to wonder what someone would think about the story and I would hold back.
Now I write something and think, “damn, that was sick and twisted” and don’t think about what those people think or what they’d say.
If they read it fine, if it freaks them out, even better. But I won’t stand hand on hip waiting for their opinions of what I write as if it’s a reflection of who I am.
It took me a long time to break that thought process and I won’t go back.
I hope you’re all enjoying NaNoWriMo and getting words on the page.
I’m plotting something for a contest and I have words to write.
