Hmm, susana, if your stories just poop out, you might not have the plan you think you had. ;-) Do you outline? (I don't as a rule.) Do you have the end in mind when you start? Sometimes I write the last sentence - or two - about the same time I write the first paragraph. It's really hard to make a journey if you don't know your destination.
Going from romance to mystery isn't such a surprise. Stories often morph genres once we get hit in the head with the theme. My mysteries have grabbed romantic subplots even though I can't - won't - write romance. The subplots just happened, just belonged.
Let's keep talking, susana. I'm enjoying this conversation and may be learning more than you. ;-)
