Hi guys, I have a dilemma and was hoping to get some advice. I've been told by my Chinese doctor, that I shouldn't write mysteries because they are a strong Fire element (all the anger and murder). Instead, I should be focusing on Water - romance, sex, comedy, travel, that I should nurture sentimental energy in my writing, lighter topics and strong emotions. I wrote something exactly like that between 2006 and 2010 (my short stories and a novella). Then I started a vampire novel I've been wanting to write for ages, but I put that project on hold in order to write mysteries. I have never read romance novels ( not since Danielle Steel in high school) and I have no interest in that type of lit. I adore Murakami's Wind-up Bird Chronicle, which is practically a study of the Water element, but I don't write like that, not even close. So now I'm half-way into writing an exciting detective novel and facing a dilemma. For my health and well-being (yin/yang balance) I should leave my crime stories well alone. I am completely lost, don't know what to do. Have you ever felt that your writing project is hurting you? Did you give it up? How would you deal with this kind of situation?
