It’s Like Black, It Goes With Everything

Wednesday, September 15th, 2004 • 1 Comment on It’s Like Black, It Goes With Everything

Yesterday, it was sex and politics; today, it’s sex and death.  How do you write about the somber subject of death and make it erotic without being creepy?  I’ll let you know when I figure it out.  It’s definitely an exercise in imagination, though. 

I’m also working on an essay, even though I don’t have a particular market in mind.  (Believe it or not, the sex and death story is in response to a submissions call.)  I haven’t written much creative nonfiction, but I’m intrigued by the stark honesty of the genre.  Writing from personal experience is even harder than creating my own characters and scenes.  It’s a little scary, actually.  Even scarier than writing about sex and death.
