By Sandra Wilkins
The other day I came across a popular cop show. The story centered around the atrocities two brothers committed against women and each other. It wasn’t my cup of tea. I couldn’t stomach it, and I had to stop watching it. I don’t live under a rock. I know these kinds of terrible things happen in the world. I see the news, but I don’t want those kinds of images to fill my head or my heart all the time.
It really drove a point home to me. This is why I write “clean” novels. I don’t want to fill my mind or anyone else’s with sickeningly violent or overtly sexual images. I’ve seen enough of that to last me a lifetime. When I read or write, I want to think upon fun things, lovely things, right and just things. I want the bad guy to get caught and the girl to get the guy in the end. Real life doesn’t always turn out that way, but in my imagination it can. And, I think that is a comforting place to be.
Of course, I know everyone has their own opinion on the matter. So…what’s your cup of tea?
