No, I’m not talking about a television show here. My dad gave me advice a couple months ago. At the time I was completely lost and he didn’t have anything additional to add to the advice because he really didn’t know what I could do with it either. So today I’m giving you a Fly on the Wall look at the epic change of my writing world.
Now, onto a different kind of Fly on the Wall look.
Change on the Horizon
Dad: “Maybe you should write something else.”
Me: “Like what?”
Dad: “I don’t know.”
Of course I just shook my head in a, thanks for the advice but I don’t know what to do with it, kind of manner. I have written non-fiction so my mind went to the fact that maybe I should go back to writing non-fiction.
Yesterday morning, while trying to get my ballerina bun hairstyle fixed just right I had what I’ll call my “ah ha” moment.
There are a few complications to my moment but one is more major than others.
I’m a shipper. It’s that simple. I didn’t know what that meant when I had a magazine editor tell me that after he accepted one of my stories, but over the years I have figured it out. I build relationships into stories and I always have—even when I wrote mystery stories there was always a little bit of attraction between the characters somewhere in the story. Because of my shipper qualities I don’t think I will abandon writing within the genre of romance completely, however I do have changes in store.
I am planning to focus on writing in a non romance genre later this year and hope that by 2015 I will have some books ready for the new genre. I am also taking on a non-fiction project that is close to my heart so I will be working on that this year as well. Outside of that, I have some major life changes coming up soon and those life changes will impact any writing (fiction writing) that I do.
Basically, my life is going through a metamorphosis and for me it’s a good thing. I will try to make sure fiction books in series are out in a timely fashion too. So Capri Montgomery Books is changing, and so is my life. I have more news I’ll be sharing this month that will give you a look at just what’s changing and what it means for the CMB line of romance genre books.
