A while back I said that one of my writing goals was to publish a book in every one of the following genres. Here’s the updated list with more genres crossed off cause I done ’em in How To Ditch Your Fairy:1
- Crime (what some call mysteries)
- Thriller (the John Grisham, Tom Clancy etc etc genre2
Fantasy SF Comedy (do you call ’em comedies if they’re books?)
- Mainstream (you know, Literature: professor has affair with much younger student in the midst of mid-life crisis)
For those keeping track I crossed off “romance”, “comedy” and “SF”. Three down with the one book! How clever am I?
I’m also aiming to publish books that use the following povs:
- Second person
Third person limited
Sadly, HTDYF is in first person so nothing to cross off there. Poo. But soon, my pretties, soon.
As well as these:
Score! HTDYF is a standalone. Now I only have to write a series and that list will be taken care of. Piece of cake.
Crossing things of lists is my favourite thing in the whole world. Almost as good as passing the 65,000 word mark on your latest novel. 65k is a landmark for me because that’s how long my first three published novels are. I passed it today. Woo hoo!
