What is your favorite genre to write?

Recommended Posts

Funny, but, as far as novels, everything I write turns out to be suspense/thriller....even when I set out to write something funny. The only exception is my historical series.

Yay! The polls are back! :D

 

 

I voted sci-fi fantasy, but I also write lots of historicals. Like to mesh 'em whenever I can. ;) But... since when are historicals automatically paired with romance? :confused:

That's my exact thought. In reality, Christian fiction is too general. If it hadn't been there, I would have voted historical/romance, although I write mainly contemporary fiction that is about 10-20% romance, the rest of the story is normal everyday life. Kind of like real life. We have to have a little romance in our everyday lives, and there's a lot of thriller, sci-fi, and mystery that includes romance. I think historical and romance should have each been their own genre and delete the fiction selection.

I chose Horror. I write something a little closer to Dark Suspense, but when I think of suspense/thrillers Tom Clancy comes to mind. . .but, really, I like writing horror/suspense/thrillers. And I could see myself writing just about any genre other than romance or comedy (two genres I feel totally unequipped to deal with).

I am just beginning. I have journaled most of my life, wrote songs and poetry. I want to write Biblical-based children's books.

I like a mix of action, thriller, humor, and spiritual elements.

Romance, i can't help it. I tried to write a little of a drama/adventure exercise, but when the theme is 'true love never dies'. I had no choice, it had to have some romance.

 

 

But all my romances had Christian values in it. I can't write without putting some of that in there.

 

 

Also i have written devotionals, one is published and one is to be published for a daily devotional next year (late this year)

Suspense, thrillers, and horror. Heck, even the fantasy I just started is really a psycho-thriller (think "Hannibal Lecter meets Gandalf").

You know what is really interesting about this poll? We may be looking at the future stats of Christian Fiction, providing we all gain a fair amount of success. . .and let's hope we do. :)

I just love to write. I write mostly fiction, with my strong area being sci-fi/fantasy/adventure. I've also written several songs, and I've dabbled in suspense/horror. On the nonfiction side of things I've written books on learning Spanish, learning music, and most of all Biblical studies (mostly off-shoots of messages I've done or FAQ's by my online church group). I also translate (English/Spanish and vice versa).

Fantasy for Children / Young Adults, but I didn't see an option to select both ;-)

Thrillers w/ some SF elements, but not enough to call SF. Some Fantasy in the works. Trying to figure out how to do some Science Fantasy.
