Comic/manga/ graphic novels I don’t think I could do the story justice in so little text. And my drawing is shit.
I want to actually try this in the future but one I’m very iffy about is actually a age range aka Middle Grade. I do have a story/ series idea that I want to mess with in the future but I’m 80% sure it’s going to fall into YA territory by the end.
I love to read manga, but to actually draw/write it, is not in the cards for me. My drawing skills are beyond shitty. So, I couldn’t do it even if I really wanted too. Plus, I don’t even know how. LOL!
Nope, can’t think of anything I love to read that I wouldn’t try to write myself. I love a challenge! I tend to go the other way–I write things I would never read. For instance, I don’t read horror or crime fiction, but I’ve written both. ¯\_(ﭢ)_/¯
I’d say Sci-Fi. I love reading high fantasy and Sci-fi, but my world building skills is limited at the least and pathetic at best unfortunately. I just don’t think I’d be able to pull off a believable story. (And I don’t think I really have any stories in those genres to really tell.)
That’s a lot harder to come up with. I never thought I’d touch straight up romance, and I’ll write textbooks if I feel like it, so I’m game for most anything.
I probably would never write a murder mystery: but I’d use the elements like crazy: whodunit suspense makes plotting tons easier. I write cops, mercenaries, assassin’s, so they are a lot like watching an episode of CSI as far as unraveling a case, but to actually write out a novel of this sort, relying heavily on being in that genre requires writing on a level that people cannot guess what is happening next…
And because I can predict stuff sometimes in the first chapter of those things, I have a hard time gauging how subtle you have to be to keep some of the brainiest readers in existence(not smartest, here, those who plain have their brains turned on for a read an aren’t even remotely avoiding cerebral overstimulation: these are crossword puzzle addicts of readers) from getting bored.
This stuff is an anathema to my ADHD.
Anyway, parallel is thrillers, and I wouldn’t have a problem writing that because all that is is making you squirm for2-3 hours of reading, and I’m demented enough to do that. I mean, to the point where many of you would likely research how to off someone in a specific manner, while I looked that stuff up 20 years ago or thought of how to do it before there was search engines. I predate rural homes having surveillance systems or kidsbbeing forbidden the fireworks.
And no, that ain’t about thinking I’d get it perfect. I just wouldn’t feel like I’m drowning touching much of anything except specifically trying to outwit readers over every single word choice.
But I actually write very little scifi due to it being a genre where you really have to know your stuff. Hard fantasy with scifi elements is far easier.
No worries, it’s not rude at all! Actually, I have no way of knowing if I’m doing them justice, but I don’t care because I don’t like writing to formula anyhow, regardless of genre. I don’t expect anyone to ever read my books, so there’s a certain freedom in that. If no one expects anything from you, you can write what you want! And my goal is to write books the way I think they ought to be, not the way tradition has determined they must be. ( ＾◡＾)っ✂
Space terrifies me. I can watch it sometimes, reading about it is out of the question, and writing about it I think would break my sanity.
Romance is hard for me, too. I’m asexual, and why I do like reading cute romance stories, or watching a romcom, I’m naturally predisposition away from fully identifying with it. It doesn’t disgust me, but I honestly can’t understand it and I think writing a romance-focused story would… be pretty bad. I’m working on this, though, as romance usually adds an extra layer of fun even if it’s not apart of the main plot.
