Writing from the space I’m experiencing emotionally at the moment is quite challenging, so I thought I would post an update on what I’ve done otherwise.
In an effort to shake it up a little, I’m attempting to write in a genre which is new to me. I’ve read a few crime books, but never really attempted to write one.
My latest attempt at a novel looks to be going in that direction, though.
For the first time in a while, I am actively enjoying writing fiction. The Faber Quickfic competition is good, because it keeps the gears going, but I have been hesitantly reaching for something more for a while.
Embracing new genres is scary, but not as scary as standing still.
