So the other day I was listening in on a conversation between a group of writers. The part I overheard was how they described what genre they wrote. They used fancy titles such as post apocalyptic action adventure and detective mystery thriller. One mentioned they wrote realistic fiction, a term I never heard before but it makes sense. Myself, I'm undeclared. I'm still testing every genre. It's part of my journey as a writer to try every genre and to see what I want to do. Looking for my genre is a fun process though. It's like entering an ice cream parlor and trying every flavor, except it's less fattening.
My little doodle doesn't show every fiction genre and sub genre, but it was my attempt to. According to the dictionary a genre is a type or kind of literature, art, or popular fiction. Well, every work of literature is unique. Most of them don't fit into just one type and some make their own type it would seem. So there needs to be a large variety of genre labels.
What genres did I miss in my drawing? Do you write in one particular genre or not?
