I had a busy weekend, full of birthday parties, walks in the sunshine with TG, watching my beloved Redskins lose *bites knuckle and stifles sob*, and mostly reading a certain very engrossing book. Paranormalcy was a true delight. So if today's blog post sucks more than usual, blame Kiersten White.
So, what to blog about? *taps index finger thoughtfully against cheek*
Hmm. *digs into bag of Grab Bag of Random Blog Ideas for Desperate Days*
Uh-oh. Sorry about this...
*clears throat* If you were a piece of fiction, what genre would you be?
Remember, this isn't "What genre do you write?" or even "What genre do you like to read?" I mean, I love to read Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Mysteries, but that doesn't mean I'd like to live them. Vamps and ghouls, werewolves and faeries? Fun to read about other people's run-ins (ha! I typed "fun-ins" at first) with them, but I scare easily in real life. No thank you.
I don't like to shop, nor am I obsessed with shoes, so I don't think I could live out Chick Lit with any authenticity. And I'm not nearly serious and "deep" enough for Literary Fiction.
Historical of some sort, maybe? I am fascinated by the eighteenth century. But...no, I don't think I'd want to live it. I like indoor plumbing too much, so I suppose I'd have to go with something contemporary.
Since we're talking real life, I have to have a Happily Ever After. So some sort of Romance. And (of course) I love to laugh, so I have to have the funny.
So, I guess I'm a Contemporary Romantic Comedy.
How about you?
