I know my genre conventions. I know them inside and out, back to front, up down and sideways.
And yet I can't make myself follow them.
The crazy thing is, even though I can't make myself follow them, I go to incredible lengths to disguise the fact that I didn't follow them. Which is just sick.
What the hell is wrong with me?
(yes, I am talking about The Blade That Whispers Hate. No, I'm not going to get into specifics.)
