And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Bending Genres (or is that Blending Genres)

Ken's brain child is up and going with a welcoming post by him and a first post by Matt on writing horror. Matt came up with the name, Genre Bender, and I agree with Ken that this is a good name. We all write in slightly different areas, and as this is to be a place for starting writers, I think it's good to try a little and see what works. Heck, I kept forcing SF out, okay, well, it's all that wanted to come out, but when I broke over to fantasy, dark fantasy, and horror I found my "writer's voice" suddenly got very strong.

I've had a few ideas for blog posts over there. I think as some point I'll need to start and idea file for it. Some things like self editing and some of the breakthroughs I've had there, finding out what you want to write, source material writing, and letting go and being happy when writing. Also the general process of getting words down and carving out the time to do so.

Well, they're going up. Hope we can keep it going. I need to add a few links and then start promoting it through the other various blogs.
