This is really important to me. I just got out of an abusive relationship, and I hope that no one ever has to feel like I did.
So, I’m going to reblog this because a FUCKTON of fic writers REALLY have a problem with knowing how actual relationships work vs straight up abuse.
I mean, there are people who like to write abuse and I’m not even going to get into that.
But there’s a reason people say to write what you know, OR do more research than you ever thought possible on the subject. If you’re afraid to delve in and honestly learn about something, do not write it. Odds are you’re not ready to deal with it as a subject matter anyway.
Don’t be the next author of 50 shades of abuse.
