Election and Writing

I strongly feel that the election, whichever side (if any) you were on, has affected life, writing, art, and social norms as much as the developments (good and bad) of social media.

Already, I am feeling this in my writing, and I am trying to embrace the idea that plot, character, and theme are more politically charged nowadays. The exciting thing, is that politics had always bored me, and many others of course, proven by the idea that politicians always ran away from long dissertations concerning “policy.” Not anymore.

Again, whichever side you are on, I have a strong suspicion that political issues are hot buttons to expand on, not run away from, even in our most commercial endeavors. Olay!
