Your genre is...

writing as a hobby - Why are you writing? What for? Do you write your feeling, or you write your imagination? Do you write for your documentation of your life? Or what? What is writing for you?

Rowling is a children's fantasy writer, Blyton is a general children writer, Tolkien is a fantasy-epic writer, Agatha Christie is a detective stories writer, Stephen King is a suspense writer, Meg Cabot is a teenlit writer, Sophie Kinsella is a Chicklit writer, Spark is a romance writer... name it! What about you? What is your specialization? Or if you can name your own genre, what would it be?

As you know, I'm so original I had to make up my own genre! Supernatural drama. Seems like a weird combo, doesn't it? But actually it seems to be a rather symbiotic thing...but I'm beginning to feel a bit like a one-trick pony since I seem to be having a hard time moving to something that's not in that genre. I have done a fantasy romance, with some success...but everything else is supernatural drama, supernatural drama. Curious: Is your genre romance, or are you much more multi-talented than me and you've a few more in addition? =)

i don't know. i just like my story ending up surprising its readers, maybe like o'henry. what is his genre? i also like an open ending story, which has no clear conclusion, letting the readers 'continue' the story if they like. well, actually that is not my favorite genre. i prefer to be a 'best seller' writer is there such a genre?

LOL... I think a 'best seller' is also a genre. I don't know who o'Henry is but I think he is quite an inspiration for you since you mention him in this discussion. LOL. An open ending story are usually used for the suspense books, but I also find out that some of the romance books now use it too. But even you don't decide your genre for now, I believe that you have some tendency to write in some style that shows the genre :p
