Switching Genres

Most of my assignments in the writing class I teach are optional. The last couple weeks, I’ve had non-optional assignments which involve creating a new POV character in a different genre. I’m impressed with their successes so far. I had to push myself to leave women’s fiction and YA to enter the realm of paranormal romance with my Jill, a CPA who falls in love with a time traveling man. The experience of writing in a different genre is valuable even if the new novel never reaches the publishing point.
