But now that I've written in each of my four favorite areas, I'm wondering if it isn't time to finally "settle" with one.
Problem is, I can't settle. I still love all four of them. I have new ideas to pursue in 3 of the 4 genres. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch from young adult fantasy to science fiction, since science fiction and fantasy are often lumped together. But from young adult SF/F to Christian women's fiction? That's not even remotely the same audience.
I'm torn between the maxim, "know your audience" and writing what I love. I know self-publishing gives you more options, and there's also the option of publishing under a different name, but this is still an insecurity that pokes its head up once in a while when I try to look at my long term goals for writing.
Any one else out there in love with writing in wildly different genres?
