Worldcon Notes – Writing across different genres

most readers want more of the same, which drives the market

building a readership takes time

only burn career credits if you have them to spare

bestsellers, or long seller?

transgressions across genre rules may be fun, but you can piss a reader off, and then it’s over

narrator doesn’t have to be you, but you still must KNOW them

only spec fic will allow you to play with genre like this

never hoard your silver bullet! – send in the best thing you have, always

although…  some ideas can be bigger than your ability, at the time, to right it.  Wait until you have the chops.

the more impact you make with your first novel, the better
