3 comments on “Let Us Go Write! – Choosing a genre

  1. This is a great post! I try not to focus on genre when I am first starting on a story, because I’ve done that and ended up limiting the story and what it was really meant to be. But these are great to keep in mind! And I also like the storyline terms too. Thanks for sharing 🙂


    • I tend to pick a world genre (such as science fiction or fantasy or horror) since it helps me with the world-build phase, and then write the story from there. During the editing and rewrite phrase, I am finding that the supporting genres are really helpful for pulling together story lines, beefing up character arcs, and tying up loose ends.

      You’re welcome! Glad it helps.
