Hello, I suppose I've been writing a good while now - I've written SO much as far as word count goes. There were some days when I had 4,000 words done on a failed attempt at a manuscript - which is, of course, failed. I was relieved to give up on it, because it seemed rather hopeless. Then my computer ate it. The only thing I see improvement is my ability to write without "going blank" as often. I feel a bit stilted - the only genre I've ever had much interest in is fantasy. Not that I've never read outside of that obviously, but I haven't written much outside of it, except a few things about high school kids that were utterly boring. But I think I possibly could write teen fiction if I tried it a different way. Anyway I've had some urging to branch outside of the fantasy genre(excluding Twilight, and most urban fantasy), which is frankly uncomfortable. I don't do change. But I don't want to be limited to only Fantasy. I'm thinking of reading into Sci-Fi, which I've always avoided. I think it has something to do with my dad, who was ONLY into Sci-Fi. *I've never even attempted writing sci-fi. It sounds scary :x Not that fantasy is easy. It's ever so much world building.
