What the subject line says -- What do you think this year's genre will be?

Rule: One guess only, none of this 'Well, maybe SF, but it could be Urban Fantasy, or maybe Cozy mystery."

Nope. Pick your genre and plop your only coin down on it.

My guess: Western. Yee-hah!

That'll be Paris-n-Helen gettin' down-n-dirty,
While Aga and Achi get downright shirty!

IT IS YOUR DESTINY...
I can't be the only one who read pf's comment in Darth Vader's voice...

But Devin: do join us. Together we can rule the galaxy... er... I mean, it's fun! We know you can write action (which may not help with this year's dinosaur romance novel*). :D

*Return to topic! I'm getting my groove back. :D

Says who? and how are you determining it is your groove and not someone else's groove? did you take measurements of your groove prior to it's departure or get it tattooed with an identification number?And was your grove stollen or did you irresponsibly misplace it and so don't really deserve to have a groove until you "grow up" and learn to take care of your groove?

Well? WELL!?

Uh. A NIAD t-shirt? I'm sure you need one.

I *want* to, but I've got an upcoming surgery (nothing life threatening) that's not yet scheduled, so I can't commit to anything right now.

… Probably? It's been an exhausting summer, but I'm hoping to wrangle some time off in the coming months for personal pursuits.
