It is almost Halloween. For the first time in my life I have written a thriller for the Writer’s Digest contest. The problem is I feel a bit odd. I have always refused to write thrillers. The stigma for me has been that a reader might just wonder: “what the hell was that writer thinking?” Even worse a reader might just find the story stupid. Hmm…. That would not be too good for my ego. My passion is to write romance. Writing this thriller was a quest to see if perhaps I might have some unopened talent looming. To my surprise, I love the story. My only fear is that maybe it is just not enough or …. Cliché. Well, the race to enter the contest is the 15 October. I will have to continue to work on my story. Then enter my suspenseful tale and just put my fears aside.
