I am horribly inconsistent with writing IWSG posts. Really any blog posts, but mostly because I’m not sure what to write most of the time.
As for the last couple of months… I took book 7 through Camp NaNo for edits in July and kind of just stopped. Right there in the middle of expanding the epilogue. Haven’t touched it since then.
Not to say I haven’t been writing. Just on nothing productive. I need to get back on it and finish it out so I can send it off to my beta readers next month and gear toward whatever I’m going to write for NaNoWriMo in November. No idea what I want to do for it this year. I can attempt book 8 or tackle some other (non-Terra) projects that have been waiting for their turn.
IWSG question of the month: What genre would be the worst one for you to tackle and why?
My knee-jerk reaction would be to say romance, but while I struggle through it, it’s surprisingly not the worst. My next thought was anything historic until I remembered that project that’s been glaring at me from the shadows for over a decade waiting for me to try and tackle it again.
Looking through Wikipedia’s list of genres, religious/inspirational would likely be the worst for me to write. I get too twisted/dark to be able to carry a story like that the entire way through. Pretty sure I’d be run out.
