Can You Write In More Than One Genre?
I've always written in one genre, but I also want to pursue writing in a completely unrelated (to the first) genre. I'm going to do this under a pen-name to distance one from the other, but I'm curious to see if other writers have done this, and if so, what results did you have? Did you use a pen-name or not?
I don't use a pen name, but I dabble in novel writing, poetry, short stories, and non-fiction articles like here on Hubpages.
