Tales Of Wattpaders ( AKA Having a drink in the middle of a work day)

Hi, Bee! Nice to meet you! There you go :milk_glass: Have you met @witchoria @epichorn31and @AWFrasier (our brand new Ambassador)?


#43

Yaaass! More teen sensitivity readers! I’m so for that. That’s such a good suggestion.

And that baffles me so much, coming from a pretty sex positive culture and murder negative one :joy:


#44

The US is a weird place. We baffle pretty much everyone else, to be honest, and sex positivity and murder negativity both sound awesome. That being said, I do occasionally like watching stuff blowing up… xD


#45

I love romance… :heart_eyes:

How are you enjoying WP? How long have been on the site?


#46

I mean… I like explosions and gore as much as the next person :joy: We do after all have a rich culture of murder mystery novels and tv series here in Denmark.

Yeah, I can’t speak badly of violence from my own POV. I use it a lot :fist_left: But then again, I don’t write for teens or kids :joy:


#47

Ahhh… thank you!
I know Fray, @AWFrasier. In fact, she was one of the first people to welcome me to WP :grin::hugs:


#48

The old Accomplishment thread on the old clubs, right? :smile:


#49

I’ve never written for kids, but I’ve written for teens quite a bit. How much violence I use depends on the book.


#50

Yes… Romance Is Alive :partying_face:
I’m enjoying is here quite well. I’ve met so many wonderful hoomans, lol. And I have been here almost a year now.
What kind of romance do you write?


#51

Right :grin:
You and Jesse and so many more. Too bad that thread doesn’t carry to over here


#52

What is the line you guys draw with violence, sex and gore? If there is a line to be drawn… What do you have in mind when writing?

This is for @AWFrasier too


#53

@be_butterfly @AWFrasier I miss the old clubs…


#54

Hi Epi. Me too :hugs:


#55

Have you found writing for teens and then writing for adults to be very different?


#56

We’re trying to revive it again! :muscle: We’re on Accomplishment 5 now!


#57

Good question. It depends on the genre, story, and intended audience. I personally don’t write detailed sex or violence, but that’s more of a personal choice (I’m squeamish about blood and I know literally nothing about sex) than any sort of conviction that it shouldn’t exist in teen fiction.


#58

Sexual violence, I think. I’m not big on gory sex, necrophilia or explicit rape scenes.

But besides that, I’m pretty open to everything.


#59

Oh… wow! Yay!!! I’ll look for it :grin:


#60

I do and I don’t. I feel like there’s a lot less drama here than there was on the old threads - also because it’s so easy to summon mods to take care of trouble makers.

But I do miss the amount of traffic there was on the old threads. Where have all the people gone? :cry:


#61

I really enjoying writing contemporary romance. I’m all for real characters and all that too. I’m pretty open to reading other genrers as long as the story sounds interesting. But I always come back to reading romance. I look for diversity and older characters nowadays since I’m 31, but I still find YA interesting too. What about you? What kind of romance do you like to read?
