... Continuing from yesterday, the blog hop question for today is:
How does my writing/work differ from others in its genre?
Well, in its bits and pieces, it's more "like" some others in the mystery genre than not.
- I write about a location I love and a time I am curious about.
- I take characteristics from people around me, from my past, from things I read, add a dollop of imagination and create my characters from that.
- Plots and plot twists, I pick up here and there.
And even when other writers and I share the same "neighborhoods" -- Michelle Black, with her wonderful mystery set in 1880 Leadville, The Second Glass of Absinthe, Sandra Dallas and her many historical novels set in Colorado, Vicki Delany and her Klondike mystery series, and many more -- all of us write with different voices and see the world we have created with different eyes.
