Good Reasons for Writing under a Pen Name

While we may not be Batman, writing is one of the few professions where you can have a secret identity….well….a false name at least.

Things to Consider about Sexual Consent

I decided to write this after reading a few too many novels and online stories where it seemed there is a (worringly) blurred idea of consent when it came to sex.

This article on consent is in regards to sexual activity. So if you are writing sex scenes in your story do keep in mind the concept of consent.
