Lydia selected this month’s topic for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Blog:
"I have a genre-crush on______"
This is a fun topic, and one I think about frequently. I have two beloved genres I don’t try to write in: Cozy Mysteries and Historicals.
I adore Cozy Mysteries, especially those in the Aunt Dimity vein, by Nancy Atherton. Murder optional, and no (or very little) blood. They are all about figuring out a mystery, even a little one, and always have a happy ending. My idea of a good evening.
I don’t write them because I’m not well connected to the modern world. I don’t watch television. I don’t even own a cell phone. (And that little beast of technology makes mysteries harder – when it doesn’t make a new and scarier problem for the characters. LOL!). Quite honestly, I have very little interest in modern society. I just love trying to solve the mystery.
Historical novels, on the other hand, I don’t dare attempt – I’d never get past the research stage. I could research forever. I’m not interested in romance or war, so I’ve cut out three quarters of my possible readership. I think I’d have fun writing a mystery set in 1880s California or England. Or in 1780s England – another fun period for me, since I enjoy the clothing styles of both eras. Oh, dear. That shows my priorities, doesn’t it. ;-)
What genre would you like to write in, but haven’t tackled yet?
