13 Signs You Shouldn’t Include That Risky Content In Your Book

Hi, Angela.

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your article “13 Signs You Shouldn’t Include That Risky Content In Your Book.” Your experience shines here.

Through my first reading, I found myself nodding and even laughing. But then, on second reading, it occurred to me that even we seasoned writers and editors can, without thinking about it, fall into one of the 13 traps. In fact, just this morning I was mulling inserting the horrible Dr. ____, who created financial distress for me years ago, into a novel I’m writing. Reading your piece this evening, I saw that I’d combined #1 “She’ll probably never read it” and #12 “It’s been years since it happened…”

Thanks as always,
AM
