Is there anyway to work Santa, The phantom of the Opera, Blade, Dave White, and my mom into a witty header? Part Two.

I owe Dave White an apology, and he didn’t even know it was coming. Lately I’ve been berrating him for wasting valuable writing energy on short stories instead of his novel. Well I’ve gone and done the same thing. I was hit by a couple of great story ideas and just had to take the time to write them. The first is an idea that I think might finally work for a superhero noir story I’ve been wanting to write and the second is for a supersecret project that will be detailed in this blog at the end of next month. Stay tuned.

So Dave, I’m sorry. And get your digs in now because I’m deleting this at the end of the day. 🙂

HI MOM!

So I just recently found out that my mom reads this blog and was not amused by my swearing and other topics of debautchery. I have a close relationship with my mom and my entire family and I respect her concerns, but several of my stories and novels have some pretty rough stuff in them and I think it adds to the story and don’t plan on changing them. I guess in a perfect word, my family would support me and my writing without ever actually reading any of it, but I know that’s not the case. So how do you other authors handle this kind of stuff with people who are close to you? Does anybody’s mom, or grandma, or pastor, or priest, or wife, or husband, or kids etc… not approve of what they write? How do you maintain a good relationship with that person without scraping the projects they disapprove of?
