A World of Fiction:
What Kind of Fiction Appeals to you?
Let me share some of what I’ve experienced. When I began to write I had given no thought to what kind of fiction it was. That means giving it a category. The story intrigued me.
Then came the day to promote my book. OOPS! When I began to focus, at first I came up with fantasy, sci-fi.
Literature – I dismissed the idea of calling it literary. I’m a person who loves the possibility and in much of literature I forge ahead and trip over anything word heavy.
Women’s fiction -Not quite a good fit. I’m a huge supporter of the empowerment of women. But Im not sure that’s what women’s fiction really is taken to mean.
Fantasy – Close but no cigar. In a sense ,with the mermaids there is fantasy but they were much too real.
Sci-Fi – A miss also. I know it’s a broad category but it wasn’t very scientific or otherworldly.
Aha – It is a rarely used category but I settled on Magical Realism. The story has strong realistic elements but there is a distinct magical quality.
Promotion – Having a category helps direct promotion.
If you write fiction, what do you think you write? Have you had similar difficulties in deciding on a category? If you are a devoted reader what do you favor?
