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.
There are all kinds of themes in books that authors hesitate to use for fear of offending the audience. Often, though, the authors worry too much. It’s okay to include sex, drugs, and a bit of Rock & Roll in your book because it makes characters real.
