Great post, Brig! I started out as a reporter for a weekly newspaper, too, and wrote practically the entire paper each week. I agree wholeheartedly with your points about expanding into other genres and stepping out of a niche, despite what so many say about finding your niche. To me it’s fun, liberating and exciting to experiment and stretch my imagination and skills.
