Writer's Thoughts: Tough Subjects

One of the things I knew from the start of the project was that I would not avoid the deep or tough subjects. But that they would always be handled with tact and taste. In this story, To Chase The Heart, the character Selena is dealing with the pressures of trying to look a certain way, buying into the belief that pencil-thin is beautiful.

As a writer, you look around at the world and certain things prick your heart, even if it's not something that you yourself have dealt with. That's the beauty of being in tune to what is moving you at the moment. Art becomes your platform, at times, to address things that are important to not only yourself, but hopefully others too-Writers Thoughts.
