Dying child brought back to life, toddler surviving cancer, living with a world class athlete... to name a few. I swear sometimes my life feels like a soap opera... only I'm short losing my memory and finding out I've had a long lost twin my whole life.
So yeah, why not write a memoir?
I don't think I'd enjoy it.
I love fantasy. Being transported to a world that takes you away from the real world. I like to escape the mundane things of every day life and feel what another character feels. To me, that’s what reading is all about.
No offense to books like The Kite Runner, which I’ve read and did find amazzzzzing, but I really don’t *enjoy* reading books that make me… well, feel. It's difficult to know how horrible the world is outside of my little bubble. Because let’s face it, sometimes it’s hard enough to just survive inside the bubble.
So no, I don’t think I’ll ever write a memoir. Unless that long lost twin shows up and tells me I’m supposed to *winks*
How did you choose your genre? Do you write what you like to read?? Did you have to sit down and think about it? Or did you always know? And have you started writing one thing only to do a complete turn around and write another?
Red. Head. Out. :D
