I never thought of myself as a risk-taker. A writing rebel. But, thinking on it, I guess I am.
I’ve mentioned numerous times (as recently as last month’s IWSG post) that I write what I want regardless of whether it’s popular, fits into any known genre, or is marketable. That, in itself, is risky. Also, the form, subject matter, tone, and style make my writing a pretty tailored taste.
I’m currently finishing my MS that’s not-novel, not-short-story, not-novella. And I break the rules of how it’s supposed to be written.
Also, I just posted about the possible downfalls of changing the covers of my books, wondering whether or not I should do it. Yup, I am. And they’re going to be what I like, not what they “should” be.
Oh, and, as you all know, I’m a pantser. ‘Nuff said.
So, um, yeah, I’m a risk-taking writer.
Wow. After writing this post, I realized I take risks in just about every area of the writing process. Yikes.
Do you take risks in your writing?
