Last week I told you I was finishing up a novella regarding demons. I did finish it and for awhile, that will be the last book that has any paranormal connotation.
Don't get me wrong, I love writing in the paranormal genre, but in an effort to not become burnt out on it before I need to write the last book of my trilogy, I'm switching gears and taking a dip into the contemporary world for awhile.
Taking a look at my writing schedule, I won't do a paranormal until the first of the year--that is, that's what the plan is. Unless I get a severe craving before then ;-)
What do you do as writers to challenge your brain and prevent burn out?
What do you do as a reader? Do you get bored with one genre and leave it behind for awhile until you crave it again?
