Choosing a Genre

A genre is a particular style or category of writing. Western, mystery, romance, adventure, and science fiction are all examples of genre. There are even stories that mix genres, like a mystery in space or a historical romance.

Although recognized more for fiction, genres can be non-fiction, too. Biographies, action/adventure, and police stories are examples of non-fiction genre. 

Think about what kind of story you would like to write. Be creative: mix two or three genres to give you lots of room to stir your imagination. Picking a genre is fun. Now let’s see how creative you can be.
