Are you a risk taker when writing? Do you try something radically different in style/POV/etc. or add controversial topics to your writing?
My answer: Yes
If you've read Neverlove, then you'll know that it tackled familial sexual abuse and suicide. Those aren't "dinner table" topics. What might also be controversial is the way I handled the follow up. We don't all have a "healthy" or "unhealthy" way in which we respond to the tragedies that slice into our lives. Sometimes, all there is is the getting up and figuring out - stumbling a bit along the way - how to go on, exorcising our demons in different ways.
I'm doing something a little risky now as well, though not in writing.
I've accepted a new position (paying gig) that is going to require an immense amount of change and re-learning while at the same time I am a fellow in DS4A, which means I am tackling coding and programming, two things I haven't done since my early 20's many, many moons ago.
So I'll be a bit busy and will likely just have IWSG posts until fall...and that also means my writing is on pause.
Not forever stopped though.
So what about you, any risks with writing...maybe even a new risk you're tackling in your life's journey? Share here and be sure to stop here to use the Linky List to hop to other IWSG blogs and see what's what around the blogosphere.
