What do you think about #OwnVoice? Is it necessary? Divisive? Are you actually more interested in works of FICTION based on the characteristics of the author and whether they match the novel characters or not?
Poet who used a Chinese pen name: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/sep/08/white-poet-chinese-pen-name-best-american-poetry-2015
What do you think? Should we still be writing about villains? Is there an interest or a place in the market for villains? Do you think creating stories or understanding villainous or heinous characters is harmful to society? Do YOU like these types of stories or do you prefer lighter stories?
Why is this character in this scene? What are they trying to get out of it? What stands in their way of getting it? What are the consequences if they don't get what they want? Answering these questions in EVERY scene of your novel will help give character purpose for being there and bring momentum and movement to the scene as well as more organic dialogue as characters no longer simply exist in a space because the author says so, but because they have a reason for being there and doing what they are doing.

Are white people just getting more bold with their "racism" or is something else behind the rise of "White Identitarianism"?
What do you think? Is the traditional publishing industry dying? Should more authors go the route of self-publishing to avoid social justice requirements or do you think the publishing industry will recover and start publishing books regardless of this vicious cycle of social justice abuse?
I don't write bad book reviews, I write honest book reviews, lmao.
In the writing community, it's controversial to write bad book reviews. What do you think about writing them, reading them, and the idea this is drama?

Ian Kirkpatrick, creative writer for fiction and nonfiction, writes novels, short stories, and cultural critique pieces on her website "Bold Words." She received a Bachelors Degree in Theater from The University of Alaska Anchorage in 2013 and a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Tampa in 2016.
As a conservative in a left-leaning industry, it can be pretty maddening to quietly say nothing and nod your head just to get along. It also doesn’t do anything to maintain moral values. She started this blog to speak back, give an alternative voice in writing, and hopefully make some kind of difference. She’s an American, a constitutionalist, and an advocate for free speech.
She enjoys writing fiction and loves exploring the world and its absurdities through the creation of fiction. She has a darker sense of humor and a penchant for truth. She’s doing the best she can to figure out the world around her while.
She has written one novel and is currently seeking representation and publication for it. She has started working on her second novel and has a handful of short stories. She looks forward to writing more but looks way more forward to the day she can write as her day job. ?
And hopefully, you’ll get to read some of that in the near future. We can only hope at this point.
