September 6 Question: Have you ever surprised yourself with your writing? For example, by trying a new genre you didn't think you'd be comfortable in??
I write Young Adult novels, paranormal thrillers, dystopian, to contemporary mysteries. Last year, I was asked to write a short story for an anthology. And given the topic of the anthology I decided to depart from my comfort zone and write a romance. I felt fairly awkward, yet in the long run, I believe it turned out somewhat respectable. In the meantime, that Anthology, which many of you know had all but sizzled into ashes.
I still have the story sitting on my computer. While it stews for a while, I haven't figured out what I'm going to do with it.
Anybody interested in managing and championing a new Anthology? LOL!!!
