In Less Than a Week I'll Turn 69...

....and I still don't know what I wanna be when I grow up.

Pitiful, isn't it?

Maybe I should clarify that by saying, I still don't know what I want to write.  Most romance writers have a sub-genre they stick to. Not this old chick. I tend to flip-flop like an ungirdled ass in a pair of stretch pants. 'Nuff said there. You get the picture.

I'm not poking fun at the woman. If she'd have short, red hair she could easily be me...if I'd have nerve enough to step out of the house like that.

Back to writing. I'm going to try my best to stick to contemporary and bear shifter romances. I think. See, an idea might sneak into my mind. Or a dream might slip into my unconscious some night. Or I might overhear a snippet of conversation that snags my attention.



My mind is like a clump of chewing gum and ideas, especially odd ones, stick. And they won't unstick unless I write about them. The problem is the ideas aren't always contemporary or paranormal in nature. So there goes my plan to be a two-dimensional writer.

At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

How about you? As a writer, do you tend to write in one vein? As a reader, do you follow a writer you enjoy no matter what types of books he or she writes?

Why do you feel the need to back yourself into a corner with your writing? Whatever idea "pops" into your head, I think you should write. Remember, my favorite, "Tumbleweed Letters?"
