About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

G:Genre

How do you choose your genre?
From what you enjoy reading yourself? Your hobby or profession? The films and TV dramas you enjoy?




The advice is to
Choose a Genre:

Children’s
Contemporary romance
Contemporary fiction
Historical romance
Historical fiction
Humour
Paranormal
Fantasy
Science fiction
Suspense
Thriller
Women’s Fiction
Young Adult

Now pick a sub-genre and combine the two.

Then give it a unique spin. That way your novel will be more lilkely to find a place on the bookstore shelves, apparently.

Would you consider trying a different genre?

I love costume dramas, but would never presume to write one.
I watch some TV crime dramas and a lot of sci fi fantasy. I love children's books.
I read alot of Women's fiction and recently YA and chose that and YA as my chosen genre.
