At least at this stage of things, one of the joys of writing is being able to construct a story with exactly the right mix of genre elements. It often seems to me that a lot of my favorite stories leave me wishing for a bit more in some area or another. A bit more actual romance. A bit more setting development. A bit more mystery. Whatever.
But in stories I write, I can do as much action as I want, of the style I like. As much romance as I want, in exactly the way I want it. It’s one of the most compelling reasons I have to write!
