Frequently Asked Question: What genre would be the worst one for you to tackle and why?

insecure2bwriters2bsupport2bgroup2bbadgeToday’s question comes from the Insecure Writers’ Support Group. It’s actually one I’ve thought about.

The answer is: hard sci-fi. Why? I don’t like reading it, and my heart wouldn’t be in it if I tried to write it. It’s almost always a tech-based version of the hero’s journey, and it’s just not my bag.

Rose in BloomI far prefer character-based tales, like my new novella, Rose in Bloom, for both reading and writing. You can pre-order Rose in Bloom at this link; if your favorite retailer isn’t there yet, keep checking. More sales outlets are coming on line each day. Also, if you opt to order from Barnes & Noble, be sure to use code PREORDER25 when you check out; you’ll get a discount. The official release date is Nov. 1, 2022.

So now you know.

  1. Hi, Sharon! I am not brave enough to write romance stores, and I admire writers who are. I chose romance as the worst genre for me to write. I like to read sci-fi and hard sci fi, but I would have a difficult time writing in those genres. I’d get too hung up in getting the science right. I absolutely loved Andy Weir’s “The Martian,” and I’m such a nerd I followed his journey on closeup maps of Mars. Wishing you success with your new book!

    1. Thank you! I loved “The Martian,” and probably wouldn’t have read it had the author not been a friend of a friend. My friend promised me the book was hilarious … and he was right! Appreciate you stopping by today!
