I’ve spent a couple of hours writing a philosophical post about crossing the line between what’s acceptable and what is not. The reason I did this was to sort out my own feelings. However, I’m wandering off on tangents and wasting a gorgeous Sunday afternoon thinking instead of accomplishing something useful. So, to keep things short, I’ll just summarize my thoughts.
My conclusion is that I won’t write about things I find reprehensible. If I’d be embarrassed for my children to read it, I won’t write it.
How do you determine what’s acceptable to include in your writing? What are some topics you avoid? Do you read stories with content you don’t personally feel comfortable writing about?
