The more I write – and it’s mostly short pieces for the time being – the more I realise I enjoy it and the more I realise that no single genre particularly grabs me and calls me its own. Much as I read SF, Fantasy, Horror, Weird fiction that’s also what I like to write, as well as erotica and comedy pieces and fusions of all these things.
If I’m going to shift my career across more to writing this seems like it might eventually prove to be a problem. People like to shove authors into categories. If I enjoy writing about space and lasers I’ll be judged for writing porn. If I enjoy writing porn I’ll be judged for writing about elves – and so it goes.
The adult stuff I’ve already written may well come back to haunt me but it has been fun to write. I suppose we’ll see but the main thing, at least, is that I don’t give a monkey’s about literary fiction and they’re the most judgemental.
