When I decide I’m going to write in a particular genre I immerse myself in that genre for a while, reading it, watching movies in it, even listening to music the come from it. Sometimes I wonder if it’s a good idea… It’s hard to separate my own thoughts and ideas completely from the ones I’m reading and watching – of course. Still, it’s the best way to get myself in the right mindset, at least from what I’ve tried so far.
Right now I’m doing a number of genre’s at once, which means my Kindle is very, very odd. There’s erotica, horror, fantasy, science fiction, romance, literature, a bunch of stuff about writing, and of course a bunch of cookbooks (What? I like to cook).
