Have you ever been wandering happily along, writing your stuff, thinking you’ll be an [insert genre] writer forever and then BAM! you get inspiration in some radically different direction?
Well I have. I’m still querying my women’s fiction manuscript, and trying to prod myself back into the paranormal manuscript. And now, suddenly, I have a children’s picture book manuscript. Yep, radically different genre. And it came scarily quick. I mean, I’d been toying with the idea of trying it, without really having a plot in mind, and then a writer friend sparked that plot flame, and the story just kinda flew. So now I need to get some good photos of the real-life characters to include with a query, and get some more feedback on the manuscript itself, and then I’ll have yet another one to query. Woo-hoo!
