Have you ever thought about being published, if your not already, and just the idea alone of being in print was enough to make your eyes pop out?
You know one of the things I have never thought of was what I want my writing to say about me as an author. Now it is hitting me in the face like an elephants trunk!
I could just blow it off, and write whatever, make it good and poof there it is, but I don't want to be that kind of author, I want more than that. I expect more than that out of myself!
What do I want to write ten pages of in the Underground anthology?
I could be the eccentric poet: Ten pages, ten poems in all their serious natures....but do I want to be known for that?
What if I was a comedian for my ten pages? Just write silly things in my writing, made it all about humor? Would I be known as the anthologies clown?
I could go straight romance. I've dabbled a bit in the genre, its common, lots of people write some kind of romance right?
Maybe I should scare them out of their wits instead? Come up with some horrific campfire tale? maybe a moonlit night gone horribly wrong by some terror or other.
Do I want it to be a young adult type of writing? Thinking of my audience probably is going to be mostly adults, I'll pass on this one...hmmmmm.
I know what I want- I want my writing to say- "she is worth reading" But how do I do that?
Maybe I can combine them all, put everything all in one story, even the poetry- well not the YA part, but everything else? Just smush every genre I know of all in one story. That way I can be the comedian, the horror buff, the romantic, the literary, and the poet...everything all in one! Then what would they say about me?
What do you want your writing to say about you?
