This has been quite the week in M/M Romanceland, what with lies, deceit, excuses, apologies, outrage and even well known authors choosing to quit the genre. I've managed to steer clear from the controversy, but that doesn't mean it hasn't touched me nor that I haven't been affected by it. I am sad, embarrassed, mortified by what's being said, by the actions and the reactions, but more than anything I am pissed off because I haven't been able to write. Quite difficult to follow the plot bunnies when there is so much commotion along the way.
I need to concentrate on what's important, and that is writing a heck of a book that, hopefully, many readers will get to enjoy soon enough. I am done with the drama. I just want to do what I love, and that's telling stories about men falling in love with other men.
Which is why I have decided to go dark and remain deep inside the writing cave. I won't come out until I've finished writing my current WIP. Disasterology 101 is more important than anything happening in the M/M Romance community right now. I won't be distracted by it. That's a promise to myself I intend to keep.
