I’m in a research-y mood, so let’s talk about one of my favorite subjects: mythology. Specifically, let’s talk about incubi and succubae.
It’s the merry month of May! After some really horrific weather in April, the warmth is finally here in the Toronto area. We’ve definitely been seeing some warmer temperatures and some more sun. I’m looking forward to the longer days of summer.
A bit of a tangent today. Someone decided to call Millennials “generation entitled.” I’m not really sure that moniker fits. Millennials maybe have a different attitude, but I’m not sure it’s entitlement, to be perfectly honest.
I hopped in on a Twitter chat a few weeks back. I mostly just observed; I’m new to the community and don’t want to step on toes. The topic was writing “love scenes.” Almost immediately, it became quite clear the showrunners were using “love” to equate with sex. The decision sparked a bit of debate among the chat participants, with many of those who were writing low-heat or sweet romances feeling a bit alienated by the terminology.
Writing is fun, but it can also be a lot of work. Some genres clearly demand more work than others.
