Some of you may know, I’ve started writing fiction. It’s been a dream of mine to tell stories in one way or another.  I’ve touched on it with video, and I’ve always wanted to try my hand at writing video games.  Both of those require equipment, money, and possibly coworkers. Writing, however, requires a brain and something to get stories on paper.  My choice, as with most writers these days, is a laptop.
Anyway, I’ve been working on a project that’s on some edgy topics.  Drugs, prostitution, and even sexual abuse and rape.  Unfortunately, I’ve been able to do research into these topics, as I’ve too many acquaintances who’ve experienced these things. I’m finding there’s probably a balance between how graphic and emotionally intense I can write, and what an audience can handle.  Finding that balance is a challenge.  How far can I go.  How much ‘truth’ can I convey without going too far. Those are challenging questions, hopefully I’ll be able to find some answers to them.
