Switching Gears

How does a person who usually writes fiction change gears to then write non fiction? Or go from non fiction to fiction? It isn’t always easy.

I mainly write non fiction, but once in a while my muse tells me it is time to do something else. I literally put other things on hold while I satisfy her. But then, when it is time to go back to the non fiction writing routine, I sometimes often have trouble.

And I wonder, how do others handle this type of situation? Please share your secrets in the comments, to aid others in switching gears. Or email me at shannonlbuck@gmail.com.

Hello. My name is Shannon, and I'm a single mother of two young adult daughters, and Memay to one precious Little Man. I work as a writer from my home in Orono, Maine, and as a Front Desk Agent at an inn. Writing is my life, second only to my daughters. I enjoy writing nonfiction, as well as fiction in a number of genres. At some point, I would like to travel. It would be a true writing adventure.
