Fan Girl Friday

March 26, 2010 | Fan Girl Friday

Recently, one of those blogs I cruise had a post where the author was earnestly urging aspiring authors to read the genre they want to write. It’s not new advice. I understand the thinking, knowing the market and becoming familiar with the tone of whatever house or line you’re targeting are good things that should help the struggling author.

I read in the markets I write for too, just not while I’m writing.

Earlier this year. when I wrote a paranormal romance, I read a couple of futuristic stories. There were a couple of assumptions about the future that were eerily close to those I made in the Enyo Chronicles. This might not bother anyone else, but it bothers me. If I’d been in the process of writing a futuristic I would’ve spent a lot of effort changing details that don’t really impact the story. Sometimes, a coincidence is just a coincidence.
