As someone who is almost a decade older than you, it's frustrating to see people attacking you for writing smut. I personally think that you should be able to write whatever you want, and if thats smut like it was for you, go ahead! It's a great way to explore sexuality, and it's fun! If you choose to stop writing smut, go ahead! Don't let other people bring you down because there is nothing wrong with what you were doing, and what you decided to do.
thank you! i totally agree with you. i don’t mind smut, i just don’t really like writing it. whenever the next prompt on my list was a smut prompt, i would roll my eyes and think “here we go again”, and that’s not a good thing. so i finally decided it wasn’t something i wanted to do anymore.
