Gold Fever

Genre writing is a highly personal thing. Some people find humor tough to write. For me, humor and fantasy is easy. It is romance, action and horror that are tough for me. Thanks to publisher's romance contests, I attempted romance. I attempted action in a joint writing venture I am planning with a few friends. And now I get a chance to attempt horror. Thanks to this month's exercise for Indifiction Workshop. Even though one may not become am expert in every genre, every genre teaches you something that helps you improve your writing in general and gives you some skill that may come in handy while writing the genre of your choice.

Click here to read my take for this exercise. Would love to know what people think of my attempt. The credit for framing this time's exercise goes to Jayashree Srivastan. The exercise can be found here.

Hey TF.. For me Fantasy and Romance is easy but Too much romance spoils it. I have "10 shades of life' and I'll be reading it soon. :)
Thank you for Indifiction Workshop Info.
