Tip: Do not EVER fear what you write.

by Gerald Sutherland

Writing is not only your opportunity to earn a living, it is your chance to explore things you would never get the chance to do in person. Never fear that what your writing is too crude, rude or exploitative, because these words you write are part of your journey. Follow the path WHEREVER it may take you. If you found the road to be a bit jagged and rough after you've arrived to your destination, by all means go back over what you've written and make changes. But follow your impulses when it comes to your subject matter. Do not be afraid to discuss, describe, or mention things that are outside of your social comfort zone. You're in your own world when it comes to writing. Play by your own rules.
