A Week of Inspiration - Day 3, The Challenge

Continuing on with my week's worth of ideas to inspire a writer:
The Challenge
What's selling right now? What's "hot"? Now ask yourself, can I write that? If the answer is no, don't worry about it. Writing is like any other profession. You are best at what you enjoy most, so don't force yourself to write something you wouldn't feel comfortable writing. But if there's a certain niche you wouldn't mind exploring, DON'T try to write a story "just like it".  Instead, try to come up with a different scenario. Challenge yourself to create a different kind of hero or heroine, a different kind of villain, a different kind of conflict.
