#IWSG Pause For Thought

It's the first Insecure Writer's Support Group post of the year. This is where writers post their thoughts, doubts and fears about the writing life, as well as offer experience, advice and support to fellow writers. If you'd like to join, go HERE

Thank you to our host, Alex Cavanaugh, and this month's awesome co-hosts: Patricia Lynne, Lisa Buie-Collard, Kim Lajevardi, and Fundy Blue!

The optional question this month is: What are your favorite and least favorite questions people ask you about your writing?

My least favorite question is: "What do you write?" 

I write lighthearted cozy paranormal mysteries. I'm not writing the next great American novel, or an epic thriller, or anything literary or earth-shattering that touches on the myriad social issues facing the world. I don't have a message to give or a lesson to teach. 

So I my real issue with the question is that I think I should be writing about something more important. 


Does the genre you write ever give you pause for thought?

What is your least and/or most favorite question you're asked as a writer? Why?
