So five minutes into the walk - I see this on someone's truck:
Drive Like You Stole It.
|Moon cast in orange - a rare sight.|
Was I a little wild - not the last few days. I've had some fun though and I did spring out of the box, for a while. Does that count for something?
Wait, it seems in my writing I'm always doing that - springing out of the box that is. I broke the rules and genre hopped a bit. First I wrote a historical romance - which I loved writing and was my entry into the published world. The research, well I almost never surfaced from that, I loved it so much, and I was sure I found my genre. Than I headed to the second historical romance which somehow veered into the land of paranormal. So I did it again. Of course, I justify all this in that the paranormal has major historical elements in it. But onward I trundled, or is that wrote - and followed it all up with romantic suspense or two. I discovered I love writing suspense, love modern day and far away settings but one other thing - I love issues. So in one "small' veer, I recently headed into the land of Women's Fiction. But that's a story for another post, somewhere down the road.
Then I thought, maybe all of that isn't so strange. Because as a reader, my tastes are every bit as eclectic. I'm reading "Hangman's Daughter" and "Nuanga" along with a Stephen King short story - all on the go.
Really, I think in life as in writing - we have many interests. Me, I have one constant, the stories are always primarily a woman's journey, throw in a bit of suspense, a bit of drama, mayhap a romance along the way and sometimes (insert a blank page here) - hey, I'm not giving it all away. Not just in books but in life - drive like you stole it.

And you - do your tastes in literature remain true to genre or...?
