Emotionally Invested

*goes into a dark corner and hides away for a while*

I love editing. I really do. And I really love authors who open up a view of the world that is radically different than my own. But sometimes, I read something so horrific that I know I’m going to have nightmares about it.

I did not enjoy, but at least understood a gritty whipping scene. And although I understand why it’s necessary, I simply cannot stomach this…baby scene. When the author told me he had to take a break after writing this scene, I understand why.

I know the world is full of evil. But I can’t stop and ponder certain types too long before I want to go on a murdering spree of all the evil men that commit such horrors.

I love this heroine because she can accomplish with courage things that would make me sick. Because, let’s be honest. I’m more like the wet-nurse crying in the corner than I am the brave heroine bringing vengeance and justice.

Hello! I’m Adriel Wiggins, wife, mother of three, fur mom, bibliophile, art geek, and all around student. I’ve been on a quest all of my life to learn as much as I possibly can about everything I possibly can. This has helped me tremendously in what eventually became my life’s purpose: to help other people become the best version of themselves. It is in that line that I became an assistant.
