Tips in Choosing a Genre For Your First Novel

in Novel

What is a Genre? It means a specific type of a novel, movie or story. Examples of different genres can be action, adventure, romance, science fiction, horror, etc. Each has their own specific details and genres happen to be the most important aspect in a story. Without genres, stories and novels would have no life and the thrill of reading the entire story is lost. This is one reason why you need to choose your choice of genre when you plan on writing your own novel.

Choosing your own genre does not need to be that bothersome. If you are to write a novel, then choose which type of story you want to write. For example, are you into stories of adventure and action? Or you prefer to write romantic novels instead? Remember to concentrate first in a specific type of genre that you have started writing in order for you to become an expert in that genre first before advancing to another. It's just like with sports; someone who is very good in basketball cannot learn the basics of soccer in one day.

For practice, try reading books that has the same genre that you are interested in. With this, you can note down important pointers that you can use once you are now starting to write your own novel. Next, try making a practice novel in a notebook. Try to check for grammatical errors. If you have a laptop or a computer, then try using the computer and save your rough draft. You can try using grammar checkers so you can check what errors you have committed and how to correct them. With enough practice, you can become a professional novel writer in the genre of your choice!

So go ahead and take a pick. Choose your own genre and start practicing. You never know, you might become master writers in your own genre, just like what happened to famous writers like J.K Rowling, Michael Chricton and Stephen King. Let your imagination run wild!
