How do you accurately write an asexual character?
You care about writing diversely. You know how important it is to have accurate representation in your stories. You want to include characters whose experience is outside of yours. It's easy to find examples of writing gone wrong, but where do you start to get it right?
The Incomplete Guide to Writing Asexual Characters can help. Written and collaborated by several of Salt & Sage's asexual editors and sensitivity readers, this guide is a compilation of important things you should know before you sit down to write a asexual character. You'll find 10 of the most common tropes and concerns as identified by our talented staff, with links, explanations, and ideas for how to write your asexual character authentically and with real respect.
By no means is this exhaustive, but it is a great place to start.
Disclaimer: No one book or perspective can reflect the diverse experiences of asexual folx, nor should you use this as your only guide. We strongly encourage you to hire a sensitivity reader (or several!), to listen to asexual voices, to read #ownvoices books by asexual authors.
