Trigger Warnings?

So, you spend months or even years laboring on your book. You fill it with observations on life that might be your own, interject ideas or themes that horrify you, and add bits and pieces of your own life that are precious and sacred to you. You mine current events, overheard antidotes, dreams, fears, and slices of your own experiences in order to craft something new and speak to something you think no one else has said. It's not an accident when a writer refers to his or her work as their "baby," and like a proud parent, a writer imagines and hopes for their creation's future.
