Writing Books/Writing controversary


I really like controversial issues. I also fond of writing controversary. Do you think it's a good idea to write about controversial things. If it is a good idea, how can I incorporat them in my stories

Editorial writing is a good way to write about controversial opinions. You can find a page of them in a newspaper. Famous editorial writers are George Will and Ellen Goodman. You can put "writing editorials" in a search engine to find out more. By your stories, do you mean fiction or nonfiction? You can certainly write controversial fiction. Novelist Jodi Picoult is a good example as she has written about conceiving designer babies, suicide, and other topics. I prefer controversial writing myself over the usual romance plot. However, if you incorporate controversy in fiction, you should make sure it does not overshadow the characters. For advice about writing and selling it, and are good. Good luck!
