It's time for IWSG--the Insecure Writer's Support Group. We post our writerly insecurities and release them to the world on the first Wednesday of every month. Check us out here.
This month's question: What do you love about the genre you write in most often?
I'm in the midst of exploring other genres right now, actually. I have a few ideas for some creepy dark short stories (because I had fun writing "Haunted Lake") and I'm working on the beginnings of a contemporary romance series.
But up until now, I guess I've mostly written somewhere in the historical genre.
What do I love about the historical genre? I love reading about history in the form of a story--because that's when history comes alive for me. I love learning through the eyes of characters. I like all the nerdy details that come with historicals, even if I'm taking a break from historical fiction for a bit.
