This week the topic is:

Do you try to be more original, or to deliver to readers what they want?

Ha ha, that’s a very good question; what actually do readers want?  If I knew that, I’d be selling millions of books! 

I usually wait until I’ve thought up a plot that’s a little bit different.  I try to be original, but in reality I expect every possible subject has already been covered ad nauseam.  I work on the assumption that somewhere out there are readers who might like my family-based dramas, be them humorous, paranormal, or romantic/suspense based.  I wait for the readers to come to me, rather than trying to write something they would like.

Am I doing it all arse-about-face?  Who knows?  Whatever the trending subject matter of the day is,  I’m either not in the loop or possibly it might be a genre I dislike.  It works best for me to write about what’s in my head and heart rather than worry about what I should be writing about.
