Write what your heart hears.

Have you ever wondered what genre your novel fits into?

We humans define genre. We place a barrier here and a barrier there to nudge different works into categories that are easily managed. In truth, some authors write just for the money and target a specific genre because of that aim. There’s nothing wrong with this, but I think there’s something deeper. Something more meaningful. Something more…art.

Out of the overflow of the pen, the heart speaks.

As we listen to the world, hearing its brokenness, our pen begins to write. As we listen to the world, hearing its hurt and pain, our pen begins to write. As we listen to the world, hearing its heartache and loneliness, our pen begins to write.

As we listen to the world, hearing its moments of joy, our pen begins to write. As we listen to the world, hearing its moments of love and connection, our pen begins to write. As we listen to the world, hearing its hope and dreams, our pen begins to write.

In truth there is only one genre. It is the genre of the heart.

What the heart seeks, the pen writes.
