That doesn't mean I can't have a little fun with my hobby and shamelessly lift from Nigel Lythgoe. "So You Think You Can Write" sounds like a great idea! I'd love to get a little group of friends together and share the experience of trying our hands at different genres of writing.
No matter what story I try to tell, my work always seems to come back to sudden fiction with a slant towards food-related magic realism (babies hatch from peaches, go on a journey, and live happily ever after in the space of seven pages). I wonder if I can do gothic (vampires hatching from peaches), travelogue (I journeyed to China and found babies, peaches, and myself), humor (two nuns, a rabbi, and a priest hatch from a peach), or erotica (he savored the sweet and luscious nectar as he penetrated her very ripe peach).
If there were such a thing as "So You Think You Can Write", what genres should be included, and how do you characterize that genre?
