Sorry for late reply, yes, not many people want to read such a story of fiction they just want the erotica or something outside of it like for example lesbian teacherxstudent, step-daughterxmommy, step-sisters, and so forth. I feel I can change the opinion of fiction with what I write but it is getting the crowd into is the struggle. shakes head society is a struggle.

Well, the thing is, is that most writers here only write for the erotica and not for the relationship. And those that do write for the relationship often fall back on classic stereotypes of such couples that don’t often reflect what society really is in terms of lesbian/gay relationships. Or trans. Pansexual. Non-binary. Demisexual. And tertiary-sexual.

Like the toxic relationships, the abuse, everyone being emo to the core…it’s not what I’ve seen first hand and online through various sources. Not porn

I had this discussion with my editor in the past and she indicated to me that my novel she was editing–which everyone here hates with a passion–showed a loving and well structured relationship. Just two people in love.

But this didn’t seem to interest most readers. They wanted the erotica part–which I gave in earlier drafts of the novel and was later watered down in the final draft to about four total chapters. (Instead of 13.)

And like you, it’s been a real struggle trying to engage people in something that isn’t smut-filled to the brim and has something meaningful and worthwhile.

But I figured, my audience isn’t going to be here. It’s going to be out there, so I don’t have anything to worry about.

same. I’m write and read in the bxb category of lgbt. You?

aww i remember feeling like that the first time i wrote mine too. It was both painfully exciting and nerve wrecking to press that publish button but the views and votes make it all worth it.

I have yet to write a book about the main character being apart of the LGBT+ group, but I have begun to corporate characters in that do have a major impact the story. I love seeing books with diverse characters and I’m hoping to do that with my current book.

For NaNoWriMo, I’m venturing out into the DEPTHS of self-projection and writing a pansexual main character! I’m very, very excited. I hope I can do my sexuality justice. :slight_smile:

I posted on this thread on the old forum lol. But practically everything I have written for five-plus years has had LGBT elements in it, and here on WattPad, all three of my “main” stories (two novels and one one-shot) have had LGBT romance and general queerness as primary focuses.

I think it’s exciting! There’s so many interesting relationship dynamics in queer relationships that you just can’t do in heterosexual romance stories, and so many of them just haven’t really been done yet.

I’m currently looking for new LGBT romance premises/concepts to maybe flesh out into a novella or full novel. If anyone has any good ideas they’d like to donate to the cause, I’m all ears! (but not literally, that would be scary)

Most of my stories feature a lot of LGBT-characters.

My Urban Fantasy series features a bisexual main character, who over the course of the series is in both f/m and f/f relationships. There are also several other LGBT+ characters (several bisexuals, a gay guy, an asexual gal and so on).

The same is true for another series I write as well. It is still set in the same world as the first one and the magic comminities in that are way more accepting of LGBT+, then normal human society.

I also write an erotica story about a bisexual girl.

Sorry, I’m not a big fan of romance but I do like queer relationships in other genres. I am also writing some characters in my book that are in the LGBT.
