What is the worst genre
for me to write in and why

IWSG monthly post

Oh this is easy. If I should write steamy romance, my readers would get cramps from laughing. As long as I had any readers left once they spread the word of my steamy romance efforts.

All respect to those who are able to write believable steamy scenes but I certainly can’t. 

If I try to write something that doesn't come naturally, there's no way the story could be so convincing the reader would want to forget themselves in it.

I signed up to Radish for online reading but it wasn’t for me. Sooo steamy. (Go check if you enjoy reading hot romance stories, I am sure the writers are good, as Radish doesn’t allow everyone just sign in and start writing - they check your story and it is published only after their approval).

Of course if I would like to write comedy and entertain, I could try to write a steamy romance book. I mean - there’s never too much laughter in the world, right?

But no, I don’t think I’ll ever try. Just thinking for your mental health, dear reader. There’s such a thing as too much second-hand embarrassment… 

Are you a writer? What genre would you not write?
