11 – Genre – do you prefer certain genres of fic when you're writing? What kind do you tend to write most?

I guess Western... although some folks lump that into Action/Adventure... but I don't think my stories nec. fit into that 'bent'... i like concentration on people and what they go through... how they relate to each other..

I'm really not sure I fit too tightly into the Romance genre either... but I've been told I write it well...

I think it's difficult to fit a writing into a genre. In the past, it was easier to identify genres... because they were in a way 'purer', but nowadays a novel or story can be a mixture of many genres at the same time: romance, action, humour, and sometimes it's difficult to say which one dominates the tone.

I agree with you about the western thing. My fan fiction is, logically, about the Young Riders, which is supposed to be a western, but what I write can't be classified as a western since in my stories there are hardly shootings, or any action scenes.

so I guess we could both fit into 'historical fiction'

right?

Yes, I think that's a good definition.
