I am in the early stages of a writing project, and even though it is sort of an adventure story, I don't want there to be violence in it. It just doesn't really seem to fit in with what I want to do. So I suppose that I wanted to see what people think of that. What do you think are the advantages/disadvantages of not including violence in a story? How does no violence influence the plot? What are some good ways to create action and suspense without violence? My worry is readers might find the story boring.
