Erotic fiction is big business. 50 Shades of Grey made an unknown writer an international star and brought erotic fiction back into mainstream conversation. It also flooded the market with fiction about sexual submission by writers who wanted to cash in on what was trending.
No doubt the movie of the novel will reignite another firestorm of interest in fiction about submission. And new and veteran writers will flood the market again with fiction about sexual submission.
But when the public’s interest in submission wanders, as it will, then what does the new writer of erotica do?
Why he or she will have to find a subject more organic to his or her true interests. In other words, a writer should always write about what he or she knows and then make the rest of it up.
If you really have an interest in submission, if that’s really what you know about, fine. You should write about it; but if it’s not then write about what you know.
This tip is not meant to be a hard, fast rule. It’s just meant to get you to think about your own creative process.
