G is for Genre
Oh the wonderful thing about genre
Is genre's a wonderful thing.....
If you write young adult or middle grade, you're one lucky writer. Unlike the boxes that the rest of the world has to sit in, YA and MG writers can go all over the board and still be in the same category.
Oh, the freedom!
I'm one of those people who when asked what my favorite book is, I stumble and stutter to figure it out. Because I love so many. I can't pick one. It depends on my mood.
It's like food. I'm not always in the mood for the same thing.
So writing YA and MG is really perfect for me. I get to try my hand at all kinds of things and it's still all the same category.
And which is my favorite?
I still don't have one. So far I've written urban fantasy, dystopian and contemporary with a touch of science fiction and romance. Well, for that matter, my dystopian has a tiny bit of science fiction in it too. And all of my books have some level of a love connection in them.
I think I would write anything if I felt a strong passion for it. That's what makes any story worth writing.
What's your favorite genre?
