ALL ABOUT GENRES & SUB-GENRES

So you want to write a romance…

One of the first things a writer needs to know is what s/he is writing. Fiction is broken down into genres (types), one of which is romance. That seems simple, but romance has its own genres and sub-genres, so let’s take a look at them.

What genre of romance do you write or want to write?

You've done a great all around job with this Rox. The historical romance genre is what I write. I'll talk about it on Monday.

I'm running behind, Rox. Been in Never Never Land ever since we were without power for a day and a half during the ice storm. I can write about the erotic and fantasy/futuristic/paranormal sub genres on the 8th and the 27th. Thanks for the great work.

My soon-to-be published novel is a historical romance. Aside from a free read that I wrote for my publisher, the rest of my writing has been romantic suspense and contemporary.

I'm struggling with what to write next. I read historical romance pretty much exclusively for ten years, so that's what I wrote when I first started writing. My reading interests changed to category contemporary, so my writing interests changed. Ditto with romantic suspense and now contemporary.

I feel like I'm sort of chasing my tail and not getting anywhere, or at least not beyond the first few pages or a couple chapters.

A huge part of what is stopping me is fear and I have to get past that.
