I’m not sure how they do it.
Authors who write what they don’t love.
I can’t imagine sitting down at the keyboard or pad, trying to get the creative juices flowing by writing something I don’t read or don’t particularly even like. Writers do it all the time, but I just don’t understand what drives them. I always think of Jack Nicholson as the male romance writer in As Good As it Gets when he talked about getting inside a woman’s head for his novels. Removing logic, etc. to make it believable for women.
But there ARE writers, writing what they don’t even like—because it sells.
I love first responder stories, probably the leftover military in me. I love to read romance and/or suspense about military, law enforcement, and firefighters. Anyone in a protective role.
What drives you? Is it the dream of fame, money, or do you write what you love because you just have to?
