On Genre

I love this quote that I just read from Dean Koontz. It really sums up my writing journey in a lot of ways.

"It's wise to plan early on where you'd like to go, do serious self-analysis to determine what you want from a writing career . . . When I began, I thought I'd be comfortable as a straight genre writer. I just kept switching genres as my interests grew. I've since been fortunate that--with a great deal of effort--I've been able to break the chains of genre labeling, and do larger and more complex books. But it's difficult, and few people who develop straight genre reputations ever escape them."--Dean Koontz
