Exploring Other Genres: Fiction

I don't know if this is the same for other nonfiction writers--of poetry, prose or journalism--but I find it really difficult to branch out of nonfiction sometimes. Sure, I've written my fair share of fiction-y pieces growing up; I've dabbled in and out of Fanfiction stories. But as someone who has found her place firmly … Continue reading Exploring Other Genres: Fiction
