Admitting You Are Writing In The Wrong Genre #SundayBlogShare #writers

This post opened my eyes in a number of ways. I enjoy reading and watching thrillers and have written several short stories of that genre. Unfortunately, I’ve half-written several more, eventually setting each aside “to focus on other things.” I don’t usually read or watch stories of the paranormal but I’ve enjoyed a few, and on the relatively rare occasion where a story idea of that genre came to mind the whole story quickly flowed out of me. They often involved love though I don’t think they are primarily romance. Writing them felt pleasurable and natural, and it just occurred to me that I’ve never left any of them half-written. In the last few days I’d begun to have a gnawing empty feeling regarding writing and your post is the catalyst that just led me to the decision to begin to focus on writing paranormal stories that often involve love.

I’m changing boats for the next part of my adventure navigating the Creative River. I can’t wait to see what is around the next bend!

With love,
