There are some crimes people can commit that aren’t punishable by law. This series is dedicated to those involved with writing, whether they be committed by the author or the readers. To be clear, this series isn’t designed to help writers better create crimes (murder, theft, etc.) within their novels. The kinds of crimes we’ll talk about range from boring the readers to abusing the control you have over the book and characters.
A main reason many people become authors is because they have a story, character, or world they want to share with everyone. Authors have complete control over everything in their story, but sometimes that power can be taken too far. Even withing worlds we create, there are limits to what can and can’t be done. That is the danger of going into “God Mode.”
