I've spent so much time writing paranormal/fantasy and reading paranormal, fantasy, and dystopian young adult novels that I've decided it's time to take a break and switch gears.
I'm going contemporary all the wall and it's a breath of fresh air. I'm reading books by Gayle Foreman and Sarah Dessen. I'm playing around with a novel about a figure skater who has real life problems that don't revolve around super human abilities, vampires, or anything paranormal.
I still love paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi, and dystopian, but for now it's fun to take the time to delve deep in some characters who are firmly grounded in reality.
What genre are you gravitating towards these days?
