Genres

I'm working on a *thing* for NaNoLJers for next year (yes, that's all the details you get for now) and it would be helpful for me to have a little bit more information so please comment and let me know the answers to the following three questions:

What genres do you usually write?
What ones would you like to try but haven't yet?
Which ones do you have zero interest in?

I usually write sci-fi/fantasy with more leanings toward fantasy.

I'd like to try YA historical fiction. I have a basic plan and plot ideas all settled on. I know exactly what my story will be about, I just need to write it.

I have very little interest in romance or contemporary fiction. It's also something I tend to not read either.

What genres do you usually write? - Randomly, it seems to be predominantly YA with a secondary genre depending on my mood (usually mystery or low key sci fi). Oh, and comedy. Love me some comedy.

What ones would you like to try but haven't yet? - I'd like to try adventure with swords and stuff, but at the same time it isn't what I read so... yeah... Oh, and steampunk... And proper sci-fi (like Asimov sci-fi rather than Red Dwarf sci-fi).

Which ones do you have zero interest in? - Anything pseudo-serious. Or round after round of depressing angst. So nothing on the current (or, you know, ever) political climate. Also not interested in historical fiction. Or high fantasy (says the girl who wants to write sword fights...)... Or mega chick lit (if a woman can't survive without a partner, romantic or just sexual, I don't want to know about her. Ugh).

So yah, that probs didn't help, but whatevs. :) (Btw, in the ep of NCIS called SWAK, McGee typed on Abby's keyboard with two pens because his fingers were in gloves and he couldn't type. Just tried the pen style verses normal typing, pens were harder! :( Dunno how he did it!!!)

I usually write fantasy or literary.
I'd like to try some science fiction.
The genres I'm least interested in writing are Steampunk and mystery.

What genres do you usually write? I generally write fantasy and youth.

What ones would you like to try but haven't yet? I'd like to try my hand at erotica.

Which ones do you have zero interest in? Mystery, crime, or horror. I love mysteries, but just can't seem to work that one out, and the other two are genres I don't really read, so not much interest there.


Hope that helps! You've definitely piqued my interest.
