|As an artist, I make an awesome writer.|
Nora Roberts? You're in for a world of romance.
These are both established and incredibly successful authors, who got that way by writing entertaining books which are 'more of the same, but different'. I don't mean they're writing the same book again and again. What I mean is they're writing to their strenghts and giving their fans what they expect (with a few surprises as well).
As a writer, part of me wants to rail against 'more of the same, but different' and show the world how versatile I can be. But it won't do my long term career a lick of good.
Instead, I focus on what I'm good at. As I come to the end of my 12th manuscript, I think I know what I'm good at.
Embracing the crazy.
Because I write books for teens with love, humour and magic. Even time travel. But above all, I write books that are really crazy.
And I kind of love that.
