Just saw this over at Cynthia Leitich Smith’s blog and had to pass it on: MT Anderson’s post at Cynsations:
There are people who want to brand themselves. There are publishers and agents who want to brand their authors. There are authors who love one kind of genre, and find constant renewal in it. That’s great, but I’m not one of them.
Stop by and read Natalie Bahm’s take on the same topic: Why We Should Diversify
There’s a lot out there about the need to brand yourself, to stick to your genre and build your reputation on it, but maybe there’s some good to be said for occasionally reinventing your writing.
What do you think?
