But this time I’m not running. I know running doesn’t get you anywhere. You can’t outrun what’s inside of you. You can only acknowledge it, work around it, try and turn it into something better. I may not know exactly where I’m headed, but this time I’m choosing my own destiny.

Anonymous asked: “I’m writing a forbidden love between two people and I’m unsure with how to build up things gradually. I want my characters to feel conflicted with how they feel while they ignore the taboo that comes with it. How can I continue to write their love as time passes on?”
Forbidden love can mean a lot of things and to be honest, I am so glad you didn’t give specifics, because now I can talk about a bunch of them!
This topic in particular is especially great in historical fiction. Obviously what’s considered taboo has changed a lot since the 1700s. Some types of “forbidden love” throughout history are not at all forbidden or taboo today so often the reasons that the romance is prohibited make for interesting obstacles for the plot.
