Sick Day!

Can I take one of those? I think my kids would riot. Ah well. Movie day then. My parenting skills at their best.

I am going to claim sick day from the blogging community, however. My mental capacity is nil and any comments I make might not make any sense at all. Not sure this post will make any sense at all! But just because I'm curious, I'm going to leave you with a couple questions. Feel free to post your answer in the comments or, if you've written a blog post about them already, leave me a link. I can't wait to see what everyone says!

1. How would you describe your voice?
2. What genre/sub genre do you write and why?


Hopefully, I'll be up thinking again in no time!

  2. I think my voice is very little kidish sounding, which I'm trying to break out of. And my genre-fantasy and sci fi all the way!

    Hope you feel better and have fun on your sick day!

  3. I have days like that too. I hope you feel better soon. I guess my voice is young and honest and maybe just a little chatty. But I write MG, so that's okay.

  4. My voice is moody. I write women's fiction. They kind of go hand-in-hand, don't they? I can say that; I'm a moody woman. :-)

  5. Kudos for your for taking a break.

    My voice is developing, and has varied from sensitive and sarcastic 16 year old girl to womanizing man in his 40's. Go figure. LOL!

    Anyway, I enjoy reading all types of books, from classics, to suspense, to thriller/horror, to fantasy and sci-fi, to young adult. Haven't developed a taste for non-fiction, though I suppose when I "grow up," I will.

    This is a great post!

  7. Dude, I'm doing this tomorrow! I hope you feel better soon. Have a great day with all the movies!

  8. I would describe my voice as young and bold with a hint of sarcasm. I write YA fantasy but I'm not opposed to writing something else.

  9. Frankly, I wouldn't know how to describe my voice. It's mine. It's serious, naughty, witty, chatty, sarcastic... all of that and more. I think.

    My genre is psychological fiction, often with a hint of fantasy. I also write non-fiction. To earn some money. One has to eat, eh?

  10. Enjoy the movies and relax!!

    I'm currently working on a romantic mystery and a YA steampunk novel. I love so many novels, so many genres - gotta try them all. I have tons of ideas for these 2 genres, so I'll probably stick with them for a bit before moving on.

    Take care of yourself.

  11. Have a great day off! I have no idea how to sum up our voice. I think I'd need to ask a beta reader (or Lisa ;)

  12. Nisa, feel better soon. And yes! Sick days are allowed. No pay, just rest! *grin*

    I write MG adventure and have started a YA mystery. But my heart is with adventure and MG. I also have lots and lots of completed picture books. Quacker the Duck and Farmer Ben, Quacker the Watch Duck my two favorites.

    My voice is good. I have it down. Now for an agent. *she rubs her hands together*

    Feel well, my friend. =)

  13. I dabble in so many different genres my voice is always subject to change, but I think my fav is general fiction with romantic overtones. My voice is mostly somber. ;)

  14. 1. How would you describe your voice?
    Weird and inconsistent. Maybe. I think that many writers don't have a clue what their voice is - it's just an extension of their personality that's second nature. Maybe I'm crazy.

    2. What genre/sub genre do you write and why?
    I write adult suspense and literary fiction. Sometimes YA if I'm feeling so inclined. :)

  15. Nisa - So glad you stopped by my blog today! Hope you are feeling better soon!

    As far as your question, I'm still trying to figure out my voice. A lot of it depends on the type of story I'm writing at the time. In my current wip, I'm unleashing my straightforward voice filled with snark. :-)

  16. Awww...you poor thing. We all have days like this.
    I would describe my voice as...quirky? Lighthearted?
    I write romantic comedies and am trying chick-lit right now.

  17. Hmm, I think my voice would be a bit sarcastic but lending to literary too. So, yeah. I have no idea. I like to write YA urban fantasy. :)

  18. Great Questions.
    When I step back and look at my work I sometimes I think it looks like what happen if Jane Austen and Alfred Hitchcock got in a train wreck. ;)
    Witty and quick paced.

    I'm definitely a mystery/suspense girl. Everytime I try to write something else people say, "That suspensful scene was the best part of the book." :P

  19. My voice? Difficult to say. I shoot for funny, sometimes youthful, I guess. I have a tendency to use words like awesome and shiznit. I write YA, though, so I suppose it gives me some leeway. Great questions.

    Enjoy your sick day! I think you've earned it ;)

  20. I have no idea what my voice is like! I've only written one book and it is a medieval romance. So there's no telling what my voice sounds like! lol

  21. Wow! The answers were more varied than I was expecting. Thanks for taking the time to answer! This is a subject I find curious and fascinating. Plus I enjoy getting to know you all better! :)

    And thank you so much for the well wishes. We're all recovering slowly but surely over here.
