Does it happen to any of you that you start writing a story and you love it and everyone who gives you feedback falls in love with it, too, but you can't be sure who would be your target if you were to be published?? I ask because I sometimes write children's stories, but I hate writing with purely small words (because I'd get repetitive, and not in a good way!), and my themes can also be pretty dark sometimes. For example, once I am allowed to put up one short story that I recently wrote, I'd like for you guys to give me some insight, because it's about a small boy that discovers one night that he has no soul or heart and begins to read and watch movies to fill his need for those and to sort of "feign normalcy" or something like that (it's actually based upon a real person's past, someone I used to know). It's not exactly for adults but also not a kiddy story, and I've seen lots of dark children's books around, and there's also Roald Dahl who was the master of dark children's stories... but I'm not sure, and I'm also not very sure that I want to dissect my stories so much because I start feeling a bit like a publicist and less of an artist.... I don't know Just sharing a concern, I guess does something like that happen to you? Should I worry?
