Cozy, that’s the genre I was recently told my novel fits. So, I got out my thesaurus.
Cozy implies; pleasant, comfortable, homelike, conversational, intimate, happy, or blissful.
Basically, without stress. I’m done with laser fast pace plots that make me pull my hair out. Novels with shock endings, or the reader is left hanging, or the ending is just bazaar.
How about you? What genre do you enjoy?
Today, the 147th day of the year, I asked myself, Do I have a cozy life?
Yes, despite the numerous daily challenges. My husband was rushed to the hospital last Sunday. I say he dodged another bullet, and fortunately home on Tuesday. Then Bob’s brother-in-law died and his family of origin is creating chaos. Their primary complaint and I quote, “Nobody told them (seven siblings and their mother, who are less than 10 miles away) he was in the hospital.” We are 1200 miles away. The man died on his BIRTHDAY!
Then there is the mundane. The electricity on the patio stopped working, the inside of the dishwasher is rusted and leaves orange marks on the plates. But the plates are clean. And the sprinkler system turns on in the rain. Oh, I almost forgot, I’m still walking crooked.
But, let us not loose perspective, I’m not living in the Ukraine, nor with the despot, Putin.
Although the three-ring USA political circus is about to begin.
We are constantly being shocked by world events, and the media’s attempt to report a breaking big story, interrupting TV shows and stunning readers with inflammatory headlines. There is so much conflict, hate, and turmoil in the world, please don’t let it spill into entertainment, give us a break.
. . . just saying
