Not everyone is going to like what we write. I'm writing for the people who will appreciate my genre and I'm hoping to touch them in some way.
I like to read YA Romance, so that's what I'm writing. I'm
actually more into paranormal topics, but I thought that would be too
complicated for my first NaNoWriMo novel. I need more time on that. I'm trying to keep it simple so I can finish. It's too easy to get lost on a complicated plot, then your story will be so messed up you'll have a really hard time getting it back together.
You don't have to be Stieg Larsson at the starting gates. Take it easy. Relax. Have fun with this.
