How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
How is my writing different from others in my genre? It’s clean and entertaining at the same time. I know there are other clean romances out there but I find most of them, when I can find them, boring. My writing is more like a movie than a book which means it’s straightforward and not flowery or sappy which makes the plot move quickly. My writing is fun too. I don’t think anything or anyone should take itself too seriously.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Be open to critique but weary of criticism. Know the difference between critiques and criticism. Criticism is usually given by those who are jealous of what you have accomplished. Critiques are good. Critiques are given by those who want to help you get better.
This is my first novel.
I’ve always had these romance stories in my head and a few years ago I began writing them down. Who knew I had full length novels just waiting to come out of my head? Now that I’ve started writing I can’t stop it.
Am I any good? You be the judge and let me know what you think.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love to be entertained but lately it seems that good entertainment is hard to come by.
I love a good romance and when I say romance I mean romance, not sex. I also love a good mainstream Sci-fi. I got tired of waiting for the next good, clean, Sci-fi, romance so I wrote my own.
