Welcome to another installment of MG Minded Talks! We will ask each of the bloggers a series of questions and they will share their responses. This month we are talking about genre. Here's the questions:
1) What genre is your current WIP in?
2) Do you always write in this genre? If not what other genres have you written in?
3) What's your favorite genre to read?
1) MG fantasy
2) No I write MG/YA fantasy and sci fi (in various forms, superpowers, sci fi/thriller, space opera to name a few)
3) I read what I write, MG/YA fantasy and science fiction
1) YA contemporary
NOPE! I started out writing YA fantasy, but also have written some MG
fantasy, historical, planning some possible steampunk. Some thriller. I
write anything YA/MG.
3) actually, fantasy is usually my favorite. I do love some contemporary but fantasy was always my first love
1) The one i just finished: YA Contemporary. The one I'm getting ready to start: MG Contemporary
2) Generally, but my first manuscript was a MG fantasy.
3) I love reading contemporary and horror.
1) Current WIP is Adult...YES..that's right...adult..an adult black comedy...I am absolutely bonkers..
Nope, this is the first time I'm attempting it and it's an absolute
headache. I normally only go for MG or YA Adventure as that's what I started with
and feel most comfy writing.
3) Fav Genre? I really can't say.....it's all across the board. Lately it's been Fantasy / Sci-Fi.
1) Current WIP is MG Humorous
3) Adult Thriller
My current WIP is MG horror.
2) I'm pretty grounded in all things MG at
this point, though what genre inside of that depends on which story
wants to be told the most. My last MS was MG contemporary with a
literary slant, my next one will be a MG satire.
3) As far as what I like to read: For fiction, it's less about the
genre and more about the story and the writing. For nonfiction, I like
reading biographies and oral histories.
1) Current manuscript is MG Superhero Adventure.
I've also written MG Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror and adult Fantasy and
Horror. Basically, I'll write anything that includes adventure and an
3) Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and the occasional psychological thriller.
How about you? What genre's do you typically enjoy reading/writing?
