How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
My genre is sometimes difficult to pinpoint. There’s the general plot, which might be considered suspense, but there are other aspects as well: women’s literature, contemporary literature. I don’t get too hung up on the genre if I feel I can tell a story that will be exciting, intriguing, and that will touch the reader in some way.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Just keep on writing. Write because you enjoy it. Write for yourself first. If you love what you are doing, chances are that others will love what you produce. Read voraciously and pay attention to why you enjoy one book and not another. Learn from your favorite (and least favorite) authors.
Diane Winger is a self-described “retired computer geek” who loves the outdoors as well as sitting in front of a computer writing, designing websites, and watching cat videos.
She and her husband, Charlie, are coauthors of several outdoor recreation guidebooks. Diane is the author of two novels (as of March 2014), and has another in the works. The Wingers live in Colorado and spend a great deal of time hiking, cross-country skiing, rock climbing, and camping.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I enjoy writing about outdoor adventures and drawing on personal experiences. “Rockfall” started out with the concept of a hiker lost in the wilderness — your classic survival story. As I began delving into the main characters, I realized that the story of the person who is lost is just one part of the web of people affected. When I began thinking about an incident where some live and some die, I began to imagine what friends and families might experience as they deal with tragedy and uncertainty. In the end, I believe the book is far deeper than simply a struggle for survival. It is an emotional, yet uplifting story about the human spirit.
