Q: What’s a genre you’d like to write, but don’t or can’t?
A: I love reading biographies, but (to date) it is one of the few genres that doesn’t appeal to me as a writer. As someone who often falls down deep wikiholes chasing answers to even the most innocuous questions, I think I’d become utterly lost in the sheer volume of research required to write a biography (and do it well). As with Scotch, Key lime pie, and graphic design, this is a case where I’d much rather sit back and enjoy the fruits of someone else’s labor.
