I write nonfiction. do what you love...what you are passionate about and you will succeed. God Bless
When I first started with Faithwriters, non-fiction was the only genre I knew. In fact, I had just published my first non-fiction book, and had no desire to delve into fiction. I soon discovered that I was up against stiff competition because the majority of Top 10 winners were either fiction or poetry.
I decided to stretch beyond my comfort level (also encouraged by other Faithwriters), and my first 1st Place win was a poem. Since then, God has allowed me to acquire a few more Editor's Choice wins with poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. While non-fiction remains my first love, I'm always open to whatever God inspires me to write. Sometimes when I depart from my "passion" I fall flat on my face; other times I don't.
My talent, whatever it is, belongs to Him, and I am reluctant to limit His creative activity in my life.
This may not be His plan for you, but I suggest you approach your writing with an open mind as to where God might take you.
