Tweet of the Day: Are You Choosing the Right Words for Your Story’s Tone?
Okay, maybe not prancing as in prancing around a field of sunflowers in a tutu or….
Nobody said anything about flower fields or tutus until I brought it up.
Burned myself there pretty good, eh?
What I meant to say is that since writing my first novel(la) I’ve jumped around a bit genre wise:
- Neither Here Nor There….: Real Life Stories/Commercial Fiction
- Sturm und Drang: Near Future Urban Fantasy
- Ruins of Empire: Sci-Fi/Space Opera
- Mallorie & Ricardo: Renaissance Fantasy.
Not to mention dozens of short stories and at least two serials, maybe three, depending on who is doing the counting. Go ahead, I’m too lazy to do it right now. Point is, I skipped through quite a bit of genres/subgrenres in a couple of years. I prefer speculative fiction, but I don’t care about the genre per say, I care about the story. If it sounds cool, I’ll write it.
Oh and the whole Renaissance Fantasy bit, yeah, doesn’t exist.
