You’ve decided to write a novel. Characters and plot lines are flying around in your head, but before you reach for a pen, begin jotting notes, construct an outline, or develop a chart, you first need to decide in what genre you wish to write.
“What about romance?” You consider.
“What to do?” You pace back and forth in a dither, unsure whether or not this is a genre for you. “What are the pros and cons, when writing in this genre?”
Can’t figure out where to go for help in making this important decision? Might we suggest the tried and true? Who better to provide you with an answer than author Christina Paul, who has agreed to be Guest Quill for the 3/16-31/15 Pen & Ink session?
This session’s question? What led you to write in the romance genre, and how does it differ from writing in other genres?
Before you pay for years of intense therapy, might we suggest that you grab a pen and paper and get ready to take some notes. There’s no telling what you might learn from an answer that’s come from someone as successful and talented as Christina Paul is!
