Censorship

This comment from Lisa Samson on her blog the other day is exactly what I was trying to say in my last post. Of course, she says it better. :-)

"But as a writer, it takes away some of your freedom to think that you can't necessarily write what's on your heart, what you feel God's led you to write -- instead, there's a person in the back of your head with arms crossed and head shaking from side to side, and you wonder what he or she will think and maybe, just maybe, that will change your message to something that really wasn't supposed to be."

I'll have to get a copy of the book in question.

Author Intrusion: Yeah, what he said
