Friday’s Writing Advice from James M. Tabor
I’ll echo David Morrell’s excellent suggestion here: find your own trope. Don’t try to ride current trends—vampires, dystopian, werewolves, grand assassins, whatever. By the time a trend has achieved notoriety, it’s already on the decline. Find your trope and your voice and you will build the foundation for a career. Chase other people’s success and you won’t.
