Now despite the title, I don’t have kids. That being said it still brings up an interesting quandary for me.
From the feedback that I’ve received and the positive words of encouragement I’ve really thought about pursuing writing a full fledged erotic novel. However I’m left with the curious situation that I have no idea how to handle this side of me in my real life. What I write is graphic pornography, but without the visuals. The visuals are created in your mind. Regardless, I’m essentially a pornographic wordsmith. So what do I tell the kids, assuming there are some in my future. How do you tell them “daddy writes erotic lit to help pay for your college”. It seems like it’s only a step down from “mommy dances for men to pay the rent” sort of cliche.
So what do you tell the “kids”? Or the parents, or the coworkers, etc?
Or do you tell them anything at all?
This is part of the reason that I’m reluctant to release any truly personal and identifiable information.
So I guess that’s the question I would ask you guys….what do you tell the kids?
