Unbelievable, that I am sharing my third insecurity. Genre Envy. I write predominantly Middle Grade Fiction with heavy doses of Fantasy and humour. Currently I am working on my Paranormal Trilogy.
Whenever I see writers tackling Science-Fiction, Speculative Fiction, Urban Fantasy, I feel several sharp twinges of envy. I don’t think I have read many Sci-Fi books, but, nevertheless it’s something that fascinates me all the time. I don’t know why I have the feeling that it must be very difficult to write it.
Actually, I am envious of everyone who writes genres different from mine. I feel they are way more talented than me. Honestly. Poor little me, tackling good old Fantasy Fiction in this world of high breed genres. Sigh. Life is indeed cruel.
I hope my blog buddies, all the wonderful Sci-fi writers (Alex Cavanaugh, Lynda Young, Ellie Garrat, Shallee McArthur, Lydia Chang will give me tips when I write my own Sci-Fi).
Let me not restrict getting help from just these above writers. I hope that all of you wonderful writers and blog buddies will help me become a better writer. So that someone out there envies me sometime in the future.
Well, I have shared another writing insecurity with you all. I am looking forward to reading all your insecurities. Do you all suffer from genre envy like me? What’s your envy?
