Roadtrip Wednesday #5 Choosing a genre

Made with Wordle.

Welcome to our fifth Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival", where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing or reading-related question and answer it in on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

You're more than welcome to participate! Just answer the question/topic on your own blog, and leave a link to it in the comments.

Topic #5: How do you choose your genre?

Michelle Schusterman: It just depends on the way the story grows in your mind. . .

Leila Austin: I'm just the person who sits around fussing with words and drinking too much coffee. . .

Amanda Hannah: A great story is a great story, I'm not picky about the genre . . .

Kaitlin Ward: Fantasy, in particular, is my brain's snuggly place . . .

Road trip song of the week:

Kaitlin Ward is the author of Bleeding Earth, Adaptive Books 2016, and The Farm, coming 2017 from Scholastic.
