Three things I write
Contemporary middle grade fiction--I love girly stories. Just the sight of this picture makes me want to make up a story to go with it.
Scary middle grade fiction--I landed my awesome agent with a book series I penned about tween ghost hunters. I LOVE that series...but everyone else was writing and selling similar books at the same time. I still want to write about ghosts, though. Like this tween ghost book by Lauren Barnholdt:
Lightweight young adult fiction--I say that because I've been told my voice is too young for YA. I'm kind of a lightweight, I guess!
Three things I don't write
Vampires--The idea of people drinking blood doesn't appeal to me, nor do I find pale men who sparkle remotely attractive. But I admire anyone who writes and reads that genre.
Dystopian--While I love futuristic stories, I'm not into the "society self-destructed so now we live in an overly-controlled world" concept.
Poetry--Pat Hatt's blog made me realize just how not poetic I am. If you haven't read it, he blogs in verse and some of his readers comment in verse, as well! It's SO fun. I think if you write poetry, you have a bright future writing picture books.
Now to tag three people.
Pat Hatt--I mentioned him above, so I'm tagging him, too! He's a prolific writer, having written books for both children and adults. Here's one of his children's books:
Madeline Mora-Summonte--Madeline's blog, The Shellshank Redemption, is a collection of her thoughts about writing and life. Plus she's the author of this flash fiction collection:
Finley Jayne--Finley Jayne is both a writer and avid reader, taking in more than 100 books each year. She's currently working on an ebook chronicling her adventures as she went from mommy jeans to skinny jeans.
What do you write? What do you avoid writing?
