We all have our own "niches" within the fiction world, but sometimes it's fun to explore a little bit outside of our comfort zones. However, sometimes… It's also a little scary to take the plunge and go for something different. This challenge, Genre Stretch, is meant to do just that.
Since this is our seventh year of genre stretching, we're going to keep up the double genre choice. The first genre is the main genre for the month. However, if you already write that genre or haven't been around for our past adventures, there is a redux genre to attempt! Or, if you're very daring, try doing both genres for the Sun Salutation.
Sign up below with your name under which genre you're doing (Main or Redux) and when you've completed your task, include your final word count and the title of your piece.
Main Genre:Western Romance Definition: And romance set in the American West, featuring things like rodeos and ranching. (Link)
Redux Genre:Splatterpunk Definition: A movement within the horror genre in which violence is often graphic and gory. (Wiki)
