New month means a new topic for the sisterhood members to comment on!
Lydia asks the following fun and fantastic question (whaddya think of that alliteration, huh, huh? 😉 ):
“I have a genre-crush on______”
(In other words, what genre or category of writing you like and wish you could tackle, and why you haven’t.)
I think I’ve naturally gravitate toward paranormal, sci/fi genres, so that’s what comes to me when I develop WiP’s.
BUT, I have a big genre crush on HISTORICAL and CONTEMPORARY novels.
Historical novels are fascinating to me, but why do I shy from writing them? Because I am not research oriented enough to tack down every. single. detail. *shrugs* I’d rather make things up, LOL!
Contemporary novels can be interesting because of their “humanness.” I would find them challenging to write because of the pacing. My writing tends toward the faster pacing and I am working on slowing it down, but I don’t think I could handle contemporary pacing just yet.
There you have it. My genre crushes.
How about you? What genres do you like but are reluctant to write?
Stay tuned for next week when Lydia answers her own question! 😉
