Am I a romance novel writer?

Updated on May 11, 2012

When did I become a romance writer?

I am still very new to this Hubpages thing and have enjoyed sharing all my thoughts and my love for writing. Hopefully with the help of followers I can perhaps become a gifted writer. I owe all my gusto to the most important person in my life, Kristen. We got engaged recently in Arizona and I've written this story. For the first time in my life, I feel like my life is moving the way I want. Thank you, Kristen; you're the best.

While I enjoy writing very much, I fear that my lovestruck streak that I'm on will limit me to perhaps just becoming a writer of Fabio plastered romance books. The kind that are sold at airports to be read by sexless 40 something year old women whom are looking to get lost in eroticism that would make a Hustler reader blush. I have nothing against sex, love, and all those things that would give me my foot in the door as an author but would I enjoy being a 'flavor of the month' book writer? I doubt this very much.

It makes sense to me to take that low road. For a guy, writing erotic literature or romance novels can be solid work. The other benefit would be writing about something that I enjoy a lot: sex. Lets be honest, folks; romantic literature is a mans world just waiting to happen. All a publisher would have to do if replace the over-pecked muscle ox with a hot blonde bimbo and your mothers favorite dirty book is now also a fathers favorite.

My dream is far more lofty than that. I have a Sci-Fi/faith lost and found story, a rehab story, a funeral story and a heap of opinionated pieces of writings that are far more important for me than books that only serve the purpose of making 40-50 somethings fall in love again. I will appreciate any following I get but if they really like me, then my non-romantic pieces should be considered and read with the same fervor.

      I look forward to reading more from you! I'm currently writing a book and I understand all the questions that go through your mind...will anyone really want to read my book? AM I a writer? AM I any good at it? Do I really have something worth sharing?

      It sounds like you have had an interesting life and I say "go for it!"
