A letter of apology to my readers

Dear faithful blog readers,

I apologize for the new warning on the blog.  Apparently someone found my blog post for Wednesday Writing a little too risque for normal viewing so they complained.  I was informed that I needed to update my blog settings to mark my blog as an "adult only" blog or have it suspended.

I updated my blog settings but I'm going to eventually find a new home for Life, Writing, and Miscellany if random mentions of certain things get me tagged as being too over the top.  Of course, based on what I'm learning about Ashe's world I'd hazard a guess that those posts may actually end up being very risque all on their own without any help...I guess it's probably a good thing I've marked my blog this way.

Then again, I'm a grown woman and as a grown woman I can and probably will end up talking about things that interest me.  This includes research I might do.  And I will admit a marginal curiosity for the BDSM lifestyle.  In fact, Ashe's story gives me the opportunity to learn more about it.  I'm not saying I'm into that kind of lifestyle, or that it's for everyone, but at least I'll know more about it.  And no research is wasted.  For all I know this topic could turn up in another book or two.

So please accept my apologies for the new flag on the blog and please, if you don't mind, keep reading.  Writing is all about having someone to read what I write in the end, and you've all been very awesome to me so far.  I'm really grateful to you all for your support.



  1. I love your posts and I wanted you to know I did not complain--yes, I found your Ashe character a bit...well let's just say I probably couldn't have created her, but you did. Good for you. I'm not sure I can stretch my characters so far out of my comfort zone.

  2. To be perfectly honest, I'm not really sure where she came from. I know learning to write outside my comfort zone is important to grow as a writer...but this is going farther afield than I normally do. I appreciate your honesty and I didn't think you were the one who complained. I'm pretty sure it was just a random person who found my blog by accident. At least, that's what I'm hoping/letting myself think.
