Do you ever wonder if you made the correct career choice? I certainly never planned on writing romance novels. Heck, I never even planned to “become” a writer. If anything it never occured to me that you could “become” a writer, I figured you either were or you weren’t.
Every once in awhile, though, I find a topic when researching a story and think, ohhh I could have done that! I couldn’t have, of course. For example, it’s almost impossible to become a hot surgeon if just staring at a half-dissected fetal pig makes you almost black out.
I was also an unlikely candidate for the U.S. Astronaut Training Program given my total fear of advanced math and all things requiring a graphing calculator or finding “x.” (Did anyone else ever wonder why x couldn’t just pick a number and stick with it?)
My third career killer can be blamed, in part, on Stephen King. I have both a healthy fear of clowns and am horribly suspicious of all individuals who can bend themselves into human pretzels and stuff their bodies into a small box. That pretty much cancels out Cirque du Soleil.
So that leaves me with a skill I have been developing all my life. Fueled by a love for happily ever afters, of course.
Still, I wonder sometimes, did I pick the right genre? And sometimes it’s nice to get confirmation…
You Should Be a Romance Novelist
You see the world as it should be, and this goes double for all matters of the heart.
You can find the romance in any situation, and you would make a talented romance story writer…
And while you may be a traditional romantic, you’re just as likely to be drawn to quirky or dark love stories.
As long as it deals with infatuation, heartbreak, and soulmates – you could write it.
And just in the nick of time, too. I was getting ready to try and fold my body like a human pretzel.
