And that's not all. I'm starting to get to the world building phase of my story. My taste in reading tends toward the dark or grim and like most of the writers here, I'm writing something I'd want to read. Or at least, trying to. That said, if I didn't want someone else to read it I'd just be doing this on Microsoft word instead of messing with wordpress. I'm a little concerned that, as I get into the stuff that some people find messed up, I'll turn off those readers.
I'm not terribly worried that anyone will actually be offended by the retroactive, offscreen disasters. I do think that some of what I have planned might hit a bit harder.
I don't want to just leave out the harsh stuff. I do want to make sure my readers enjoy it.
Any advice on easing them into it or other techniques?
