As writers, we‘re constantly told to choose the conventional path, which means choosing a genre and sticking to it. But what happens when you want to write romance today, horror tomorrow, and a children’s book the next? Are we bound to what our audience wants. My advice? Write about what stirs the emotion inside you. There’s nothing worse than reading a book by an author whose heart is not in the story. Remember, our books are a direct reflection of who we are, with little pieces of our heart and would mixed into each character and chapter. So, the next time you’re struggling with whether or not to break the genre barrier, do it!
