I’m a big fan of looking beyond genre, because I think genre kills. Genre imprisons creatives into little boxes that creative people were designed to break in the first place. Genre kills because life isn’t lived in genres
So, when I say I’m writing a novel, inevitably the next question is always: “What are you writing about?” I’m secretly annoyed by this question. Although I know everyone who asks it really means well, there’s something sort of unfair about it.
