Happy Insecure Writers Day!
Once a month we all come together and join in on a blog hop, the aim is to support other writers with their insecurities and offer encouragement. This is the brain child of Alex Cavanaugh and if you wish to join in just add your blog to the blog hop and join in.
So in the last month I have managed to get myself further into book blogging, but this is book blogging with deadline! I will await paperback novels to grace my letter box. I am currently reading The Things We Needs to Say by Rachel Burton who also happens to by the mentor. This is a genre that is completely out of my usual comfort zone but I have been making my way through the stories and mostly crying on the way to work. But more on that on the launch day!
This weeks question is…
What Do You Love About The Genre You Write In Most Often?
Well I write in crime, when I started my WIP over a year ago, I wanted to make it a thriller but when Rachel read the first bit of it she said that it’s a procedural crime story. So there we have it, I listened to advice from the greats likes of C L Taylor and Mark Edwards on writing a psychological thriller and I am clearly not good at it!
Even as a kid I have wanted to be a detective, I used to watch The Bill, Midsommer Murders and all the other great crime TV programmes. So I think as I can’t be a detective especially now even if I tried I will write crimes that need solving.
So I guess I am living my dreams through my characters and it is the only legal way you can get away with murder. I have already told my boss he is already on my hot list, even though his name sake appears in my WIP it’s totally not him, but I enjoyed writing him if you get me the things I wish I could do to my boss, who is a total different character it just has his name. No Spoilers here…
Though as much as I enjoyed writing my WIP I am regretting deciding to look into trafficking for my next novel… Also depending on feedback I might just be writing a male detective and not a female lead as I imagined.
Enough of my ramblings Happy IWSG day!
