One Week of Wolves- Ann Aguirre
Ann Aguirre is one of those writers who makes me go ‘Oooohhhhh…’ and after reading one of her stories I find myself thinking back on parts. Some day I want to be able to write the layers within layers that she does. I also admire Ann for her ability to write in different style of genre, and she works very hard to make her stories very awesome. I like seeing that! :D Oh, and the kick-ass heroine in her romantic sci-fi series? I <3’s Jax.
So Viv invited me to guest blog. She recommended a number of topics. Being a diligent person, I wrote all the topics separate pieces of paper and invited my cat to choose. After ten minutes of coaxing said cat and failing, I called my child, who proved more reliable than the feline. You lucky people get to find out why I love writing in multiple genres.
First, I suppose I ought to introduce myself. I write romantic science fiction, urban fantasy, young adult, paranormal suspense and apocalyptic romance with Carrie Lofty, my friend and writing partner. Since I signed with Laura Bradford in March 2007, I’ve sold eighteen novels, three short stories, and a novella. I live in Mexico with my family, and I love video games. (That should about do it, yeah?) Moving on!
As to why I love writing across many genres, it’s equal parts love and necessity. See, I suffer from a condition called Genre ADD. If I had to commit to writing only one type of book, I’d get bored. People often comment on the pace at which I write; the word “grueling” has been used. And yeah, sometimes even I wonder how it all gets done at the end of the day. But changing things up helps a great deal. I’m generally not writing the same thing back to back (although I did the year I wrote two Ava books, Skin Heat and Skin Dive; those are paranormal suspense.) Now I’m writing romantic science fiction, Aftermath, the fifth Jax novel — at the same time as the the second Ellen Connor book, Midnight. The two are different enough that I don’t mind the double work. Oddly enough, I can write 5K a day, as long as it’s not on the same project. Since I’m constantly changing what I think about, multiple genres help prevent me from burning out. I’m always getting edits or revisions in addition to the new material I’m contracted to write, but fortunately, it’s usually different than what I’m already working on.
In that same vein, series make it easier to juggle multiple projects. Jax is one of the easiest for me to write because I’ve been with her the longest. (And I cried when I turned in my proposal for the last two books.) Yet I’m ready to wrap things up for her and send her on her merry way. At this point, I think she’s been through enough.
I’ve always been an eclectic, mood-driven reader, so it’s natural I write the same way. Feel free to ask questions and I’ll check back to answer them. Thanks for having me!
