Selecting Which Genre to Write In

Write the book you want to read.

Since writers devote a great amount of time and effort to producing creative work, selecting which genre to write in is extremely important. Even if no one else chooses to read what we have written, we need to know that we have expressed ourselves fully, and in a meaningful way. 

The manner in which to achieve this, is to select a genre that speaks to us. Here is a list of book types or genres, along with several examples of them: http://reference.yourdictionary.com/books-literature/different-types-of-books.html

As you peruse the above list, think about the genres that you enjoy reading about or genres that you have always wanted to explore. 

Seek out books that are written, in these genres, to help decide which one deserves your time and effort. 

Next week, I will be blogging about word counts.
