The Writer has a (too) brief interview with Kristin Landon, sci-fi author, in its January 2009 issue. This advice from Landon is something that has taken me years to learn and yet I still make the mistake. So here is it as (one of) my New Year’s Resolution:
“Wedging yourself into a genre because it sells is the road to mediocrity; so if your heart isn’t in it, don’t write it. Find the issues that spark your passion and build your story around them. If this is really what you want–if you’re telling your stories–then you’ve got a chance.”
Happy New Year, everyone!
