I love the post linked here, because it’s a great tool for writing in any genre, no matter whether you write fantasy, mystery etc.
Today I’d like to talk to you about a huge discovery I made about my creativity and my work as an author.
As you well know, by reading my character interviews and such, I love Christian fiction and mysteries. However, there’s one more genre I find fun and exciting to write and this genre is fantasy. I don’t mean the dark fantasy some authors write. No, my fantasy is clean, has a Christian fiction flair, and a hint of mystery. The magic I use is good magic, to ward off the evils of my world. I have created magical creatures that rescue people and animals in trouble, and two girls earn their wings after assisting with the rescue mission and discovering the truth about their supposed friend.
Will I still write my Christian mysteries and thrillers? Certainly, but I want to be known as a multi-faceted author, therefore I may experiment with other genres, but make my novels clean and easy for my readers to digest. If it turns my stomach, I won’t read it, nor will I write it and subject you to such literature, though there are those of you who like this type of writing style.
I encourage you to follow me down my creative journey as I make discoveries about myself as a Christian, a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, let’s just say an all-around human being, and last, but certainly not least, as a writer. Thank you for reading and sharing my amazing discovery.
Before I leave you to ponder my revelation, I have one final question for you, my dear reader. What amazing discoveries have you made as a creative person? Please share your aha moments in the comments below. God bless you and happy writing.
