Valid Concern

I'm scared to date writers.
Why writers?
You'll write about me in a poem or something. Especially if things get bad.
You're probably right.
I was hoping you wouldn't say that.
Then I'd be lying.
Would you at least try to make it discreet?
I don't know. Probably not.
Well I could sue you. For defamation of character.
Are we really having this conversation?
Umm, you're not going to write about it are you?

I feel exactly the same now my girlfriend has started a lesbian erotic writers' class and will be presenting her work on stage to an audience!

yeah this piece is a conglomeration of various conversations I've had with lovers or friends who have told me about their own situations.

though i've never explicitly written about a person, there's elements of people in my life that come through in the characters of my stories. poems are more difficult because they are often inspired by/or specficially about individuals i know. i keep details out and focus on the sentiment. but that's how I write my poems. Someone else may not.

discretion and respect is important to me. i try to be aware of that in the writing process.

hope you doing ok with being exposed, so to speak!
