I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just a casual observation on the state of me.
I've been creating new pieces of flash fiction for my other blog, and as of late, the content has gotten, well, a little odd.
For those who are relatively new to my blog, about three weeks ago, I posted a story over there that was a bit graphic. By "graphic", I mean sexually explicit, not violent. Anyways, it necessitated labeling the other blog "Adult Oriented", so as to avoid censorship problems in the future (if you click on the link, you'll have to answer "yes" to the question, before you can read the story).
But this post is really not about that, it's about the general path that my writing for that particular type of style (flash fiction) has taken. Since I decided to concentrate on flavoring my writing with varying degrees of sex, it seems to be the only thing I can comfortably churn out.
It hasn't gotten as graphic as the story that ushered my other blog into the realm of naughtiness (thanks to some very fine writing tips from a few of my readers), but it's explicit enough to get the point across without turning people off.
The funny thing is, I've found that using certain fantasy elements (specifically vampires) almost requires throwing sex into the mix, be it overt or suggestive. In fact, using those fantasy elements has helped me so much, that I think I might have finally found my preferred writing style, at least for my flash fiction.
I'm not sure what kind of question I'm trying to ask here with this post. I'm not sure if there's even a question contained within this post. I think that this post is more of a "thinking-out-loud-so-as-to-try-to-make-some-sense-out-of-what-I'm-currently-writing", than anything else.
But, if you can find a question buried somewhere in this post, by all means, please let me know what it is, and I'll try to answer it for ya.
