make sure you are true to you

I read this fantastic post about making sure you write the stories that fit you.  The article is a very good read and reminded me of when I first realized that my favorite stories to write–the ones that made me look forward to sitting in front of my computer each day–were the ones that had a strong romance in the plot.  It was a few years ago.  Before then, I fought it like crazy.  I was a serious speculative fiction writer, I told myself.  And yet, story after story I found myself wanting to create relationships and explore them.  Then, one day I looked over my “To Write” list for my next story and it hit me that every single one of them had a romance at its heart.  Some of them were rather gushy at that.  Once I accepted that sweet romance is my thing, writing became a lot more fun.  It still is.
