September 7 question – What genre would be the worst one for you to tackle and why?
Erotica was my first thought! But then I remembered reading some Sarah J. Maas recently and complaining to himself that I could write better than this “he speared me” shite.
Research time! This page has the clickbait title of 144 genres and thankfully it’s split into categories and sub-categories. I’ll be looking at the categories not the sub-categories – we don’t have all month.
The categories are:
- Science Fiction
- Thriller and suspense
At the end of the day, I write for my own enjoyment and pleasure. I won’t write in a genre I don’t enjoy and gives me zero pleasure. There’s only one category above that falls under this: horror. I don’t read it, I don’t watch it, I won’t ever write it. You could argue that horror would be the worst but as I said I won’t tackle it.
To answer the question:
I would find tackling Science Fiction and Western the worst. Science fiction because I’m not exactly the most technical gal you’ll meet. I choose pen & paper every time over phone and computer. I enjoy reading some Sci-fi but I’m not a huge fan. Western, then, well just no. Other than the horses, I don’t find it appealing at all. However I would give them a crack if the opportunity arose, sure why not. It fills me with dread though, it reminds me of the time I got my teeth pulled and the painkiller wore off before I had a chance to swallow the next painkiller. I threw an adult-sized tantrum because my mouth was so swollen and bloody I couldn’t swallow a tic-tac sized pill. Eventually I managed to swallow the damn thing and passed out on the bed!
