When thinking about what to write for the blog today I was stumped! I have so many writing projects going on that I'm up to my eyeballs in work after work!
I have four books from critique partners that I SERIOUSLY need to finish since NaNo is over, and I'm reading at least two chapters a day. I'm also editing my 76k NaNo novel, and starting my next project. The new one is a novella that's a short of continuation on a fairy tale. I was calling it a retelling, but it's not exactly (though sort of since fairy take continuation isn't really a category). I'm excited about it and I have a general bulleted outline, plus I wrote the first 300 words last night!
Any ways though there are those above updates nothing is far enough alone to write a whole post about. Then I remembered top tens and decided to do one!
But what to top ten about?? Hmmm.... Then I looked back at old posts and reminded myself that I want to try new genres. So my tops today are my top genres I want to try soon!
1) Steam punk - I haven't read any steam punk (so if you have any please share is I'd love to read) and I really have no idea how to go about it, but I want to try eventually!
2) I was also pointed to dangerous writing (like Chuck Palanuik) and though I'm sure to fail miserably I really want to try! http://bit.ly/IFR6DT
3) Science fiction - again possible fail, but totally new frontier
4) I have plans for paranormal (Vampires) but I akao want to try werewolves or fairies or genies or something different sometime too!
5) Also have plans for glbt elements mixed in with another genre in a future novel.
6) I want to try a romance/erotica thats a little funny too. (Chick lit romance/erotica?!)
7) I've done YA and Adult so NA will be soon!
8) Historical fiction/alternate history fiction. I like the idea if taking some time in history and creating an alternate route/history. Cool idea!
9) Dystopian - this one could be really fun!
10) Fairy tale retelling/continuation - I know this one is cheating because I'm already starting it but too bad I needed a number ten I will actually try!
Some categories I was told about that I will NOT be trying out include both: dinosaur erotica and zombie erotica........
