Everyone has that favorite genre that they like to read or write in. For some people that’s horror, for others it’s adventure, but for me it’s romance. My favorite genre to write in is romance. There’s nothing better to me than reading about how two people fall in love. I’m not talking about romance with a billionaire CEO, if that’s something you like that’s fine, but that’s not my favorite type of romance. Some of my favorite stories are two friends that fall in love with each other, high school romances, two people that just met, a person who didn’t expect to fall in love, and the list goes on and on. I end up spending most of the book wondering if they’re going to get together. I may not like some of the trends in paranormal romance, but it’s still one of my favorites.
I tried to write in other genres, but it didn’t work for me. When I tried writing a crime story, I had a romantic subplot so I changed it to a detective falling in love on the side while he worked on his case. Next, I tried to write a horror story and the same thing happened. The pattern continue with each genre I tried that I decided to focus my attention on romance. I found that it was easier for me to write a romance story. I think it’s because I’m a romantic at heart. I still like other genres like fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and realistic fiction, but I found that genre easiest for me to write in is romance. I would like to see more romances with different types of couples and lifestyles though that’s a story for another day.
