…DO YOU CONSIDER yourself a genre writer?
I never ever set out to write in a particular style or genre. I always just… write. But since my blogging days commenced in 2013, I seem to have ventured into horror/ supernatural far more than any other genre, and even before posting on WordPress, my previous short stories often had horror elements.
How did that happen?!
Although I gravitate to twisted tales, or at least tales with a twist, I love writing about all kinds of subjects from science fiction, humour, thrillers, to sentimental stories of childhood innocence. Romance not so much! Although give me credit, I did at least one story loosely based on love (kind of).
Generally I don’t like categories, labels, pigeon holing etc. but it is helpful in describing what type of writer you are and gives people an idea of what your stories may entail, should they ask (they haven’t yet, not in real life lol).
So how did your stories evolve into what you currently write? Did you set out to write in a particular genre or has the genre found you?
