Okay so clearly one post a week is still going to be a challenge for me. I apologize if I remain a bit inconsistent for awhile. I promise to do my best!
Have any of you struggled to decide which genre you want to write in? If you hope to go the traditional publishing route - as I do - it is unlikely you will find a publisher keen on the idea of you publishing across multiple genres because it makes it more difficult to establish a stable fan base.
I love reading across multiple genres - some of my favorite books are fantasy where others are realistic fiction - so I find it difficult to pick a single genre to write in. Once you break through the wall into publishing in a specific genre you become locked into it; it becomes what everyone expects of you. You could write under a pen name in a new genre I suppose, and many others do, but something about it doesn't appeal to me.
I have a few different story ideas right now that I really love, but they are all in different genres so I am struggling to pick one to dedicate my time to. How can I pick a single genre when I love so many?
Have any of you faced this dilema?
