Feeling Non Writerly
So many writing conversation starters are about your main character (MC). And I get it, but also… not. I have a series of satirical books and I don’t even know what genre they fit in.
Comedy? Kinda (I mean I hope so?!). Non fiction (well they’re not fiction but I also make up words if I want to soo…).
Side note: this is kind of a bonus of self publishing because while you sometimes have to choose a genre at a point in publication, you don’t have to convince anyone else that you’re correct about your book being in that genre.
But even when I put the satirical series aside, which MC!? Which story!?
I can’t relate to only writing one thing at a time. Let alone one genre at a time. The two main fiction works I have are totally different. One is scifi and one is more chick lit. (Though I really don’t like that term.)
Whatever you call it, I feel left out of conversations as I could answer questions about lots of books and genres and characters.
