Well, not wrong, actually. Rather...'When writing what you love could get you in trouble.'
What is this, you ask?
I'm close (another 500 words?) to a third of the way done in my new WIP. It's flowing, baby. Imagine: I was writing happily away in the train yesterday evening, when a particular (relatively important) character did something.
Something that made me not only pause, but say out loud (in a german train, mind you): 'Holy Sh*t.' I had to stop writing for the night, and I didn't write this morning either. I was, as they say, knocked for a loop: I had no idea this was coming.
I write for the MG/Upper MG group, so at their oldest my target audience is about 13. It's something (without going into it here) that makes me wonder if kid's parents would lambast me for...I'm pretty sure they would. And will, when it's published. (see, positive thinking).
What made me ashamed of myself was the fact I actually stopped writing and worried about what people would think when they read this. And I truthfully didn't know how to handle it.
I'm better now - I've decided to finish the first draft and see how/where it might be important and go from there. I won't let others determine how I write my WIP, but it sure gave me pause.
What about you? Have you ever written anything that you felt could/will get you in trouble? And how did you deal with it?
