Nano Nineteen – Adult Situations

There sines a time in every writers career when they have to make a decision to introduce adult situations into their prose. These times raise the blood pressure of our tender snowflake ecosystems and make worrying about specific word choice and world building more important than ever before.

Adult situations bring stories to a head, accelerate the pace of a bidding relationship between characters, or even amplify the animosity between the protagonist and antagonist.

These situations I’m referring to, of course, are items like mortgages, careers, marriage, adoption, refinancing, loan modifications, and even, dare I say it, choosing the paint color for a room.

They can be scary decisions you as an author have to make, but these definite adult situations build character to your characters and thickens the plot for a brighter storyline.

What? You thought this was about something else?
