Writing Excuses 6.23: Pigeon Holes

Writing Excuses 6.23: Pigeon Holes

From http://www.writingexcuses.com/2011/11/06/writing-excuses-6-23-pigeon-holes/

Key points: Beware pigeonholes! You can get a lot farther by writing what people think they want than just pushing what you want. Write what you want, but do it in such a way that people think it's something else! Be open to trying new things. Pick difficult things. Pick things outside your comfort zone. Stretch as a writer! Fulfill your creative jollies in a lot of media. Find the best story you can tell and tell it with your greatest skills. Rise to that challenge! Find the fun of each new type of story. Do a writing prompt every day, share it with people, and write!
