I have a motto of "to experience life is to be open minded". I love trying new things. If I don't give something a chance then I feel like I'm missing out on something huge.
This way of mind also stretches to my tastes of music, movies and books. I have a real hard time when someone asks me what's my favourite type of music or movie. Usually on my iPhone I've got a playlist that includes genres from soft rock to heavy metal, even J-Pop (that's Japanese Pop). As for movie's, I tend to like genres which suits my mood and is anything from Disney to Action to Arthouse and Horror.
I'm now starting to see this ecclectic taste in my writing. All the ideas that are swimming around in my head are all of different ya genres, although when I try to create a contemporary story it turns into a horror (don't ask me how). Now I just have to figure which story idea I'm going to delve into first.
So, do you have certain tastes when it comes to music and movies, or do you like to be open minded and give any genre a try? If so, do you see yourself writing in multiple genres or sticking to the one?
