Hello all! Idk if I used the right Topic (General Chat) but It’s whatever. I need help with the Guidelines, and want people their opinions.
I’ve read the Guidelines but I don’t really understand it I guess? So I’ve got a few questions in mind:
Can you write about drugs, intimate scenes (PG 13 tho) and can you write about gangs (Non problematic ofc)?
These are some questions I have for now.
But these are just things I’m wondering because there are a lot of stories I’ve read on the app that include these topics, but when I read the Guidelines I see you can NOT write about them?? Maybe It’s just me. But I’ve just been wondering.
It would be nice if people can answer my questions and please don’t be scared to give your opinions.
And if you would include these things… how would you write it?
Sometimes topics like these are used in stories in a descrete way because you don’t know which kind of audience you will pull. So writing about the things you mentioned is not allowed in a concrete/clear way, but in a discrete way in which not everyone will understand is possible.
(So don’t write the full name of the drug as an example.)
I agree with this tbh, i think its better to be safe but ive never had a problem mentioning drugs by name in my story, you just cant romaticize them, so like in mine my serial killer drugs people and in that context i think its fine, ive never been flagged for it, but you had a drug addict character i wouldnt mention any names
as for sexual scenes if they have clothes on and its not obvious in any way you should be fine
