I Saw a Movie Today... Oh Boy....

I love to watch movies, but I rarely get the time anymore. Why? Because I want to enjoy the movie. I want to savor what I'm watching.

So what did I watch?

Actually, I watched a Sean Penn movie, Milk.

I like a movie that makes me think. And this one did, but not just because of the political statement. Yes, I liked the statement, but I'm not here to get political. I find myself feeling awful for Scotty in this movie. He loved so much, but other stuff got in the way. The tragic-ness of it tugged at my heart.

Actually, I wanted to blog about being accepted and this just fit-when something becomes tragic and doesn't need to.

Some people just can't accept. That's sad. I recently had an instance where a person found out I wrote erotica, and that person vented their opinions.

Is there something wrong with someone writing a story that celebrates sexuality? I don't think so. It's not.

But I think I'll stop now because I'm afraid I'm getting preachy and that's not my intention at all.

And yes, I still feel sorry for Scotty.

One of the hardest parts of being authors is taking the 'criticism' from people who don't agree with our styles of writing. We want to be accepted by everyone, and sadly, that just doesn't happen. Although you and I write on different ends of the spectrum, I still respect what you do and definitely feel you have every right to be as 'free' with your writing style as you choose. If someone doesn't like erotica, then simply tell them not to read your books! You will find many others who will enjoy what you have to share. I have actually gotten criticized for NOT writing sexual content! You won't please everyone, so don't even try. Just keep writing from the heart, and best of luck!
