Blogging Insights # 33 – Genres

QUESTIONS:

1. What is your passion with regards writing genres ?

2. What is your chosen genre ?

3. What is the genre you might like to write about but lack confidence to start ?

 

MY ANSWERS;

1. What is your passion with regards writing genres ?

When  I first launched my blog, I just had the urge to write. I was not very clear about what genre to choose. Since I loved to read, I thought I might write about books. I was also quite interested in food (not recipes), so I thought my niches would be food and literature. As it turned out, I started writing about personal development / motivation and about blogging.

 

2.  What is your chosen genre ?

Two and a half years into blogging, I have still not been able to narrow my self down to any particular genre. You could say that my niche, by default, is “Lifestyle”. I write on several writing prompts and run two prompts myself : Blogging Insights on Monday and 5 Things on Tuesday.

 

3.  What is the genre you might like to write about but lack confidence to start ?

I want to write a mystery / detective novel; I even have a rough plot for one. What is keeping me from going ahead with it is not a lack of confidence but a lack of continuous blocks of time for background research, caracter development etc. I am very busy with family stuff in the foreseeable future and do my blogging in whatever odd snatches of time that I can manage.

 

Okay, that was my bit; now I would love to read your views.
