Stick-to-One-Genre or Multigenre?
As a writer, you have to figure out what you’re good at. Which is especially difficult for some writers like me.
What is a multi-genre writer? A multi-genre writer is someone who writes in multiple and across genres. They may write multiple books with each having a different genre, and also books which have more than one genre in them. This, of course, is not limited to fiction. Nowadays, multi-genre authors write fiction and non-fiction.
The main point of a multi-genre author is to be able to write in different genres and make a profit. They are able to do this by publishing books and selling them to different types of readers. For example, a multi-genre author may write fantasy books and publish them as well as selling romance books.
Are there benefits of being a multi-genre writer? I believe there are.
Some well-meaning authorities in writing and publishing strongly advise against writing in more than one genre at a time. But writing is a lot like painting: it’s a creative outlet and it’s a way to express yourself. When you are writing, there are no rules. You are free to explore your creativity without limits. Being a multi-genre writer is one of the many benefits of writing.
If you find that you are writing in the same genre all the time, you should consider writing in different genres to see how it changes your perspective on writing.
Writing in different genres is also a great way to explore different aspects of the world. You can explore different cultures, different countries, and different aspects of life. This is a great way to learn more about the world. It’s also a great way to explore different genres of writing and find out which one you enjoy the most.
Unapologetically writing a mix of genres is a great way to make your work stand out. A word of advice: You want to stick with a few genres that you are passionate about.
So, if you are passionate about writing horror, then write horror. If you are passionate about writing mystery, then write mystery. If you are passionate about writing romance, then write romance. If you are passionate about writing sci-fi, then write sci-fi.
You don’t want to write a bunch of different genres and have them all sound the same because it will not be very exciting to read.
“Multigenre writing can be a challenge, but it can also be a way to fulfill the different parts of your creative needs.”
A multi-genre writer is someone who is not afraid to write or edit across different genres.
And I am unapologetically one.
