Genre tips

Genres Genres Genres!

a to zFor last years’s A to Z Challenge, I decided to focus on literary genres. I easily found one for every letter of the alphabet. In fact, in most cases I had to pick from several despite both being fascinating categories. Because of that, I’m going to do Genres II for this year’s A to Z.


I do have a few letters I don’t have genres for:

I–I already used Inspirational so I need a different one.

K–I already used Kitchen Sink so I need a different one.

Q–I already used Quiet Horror so I need a different one.

Any suggestions?

  2. Hi Jacqui – well thankfully some have their brains in gear for you … I don’t know whether Icy … or Queenly would fit and K for Kulture … would do – cheers though – Hilary

  3. How about Imaginary Voyage (satirical representation in a fictional travel story) for I, Kusazōshi (Japanese woodblock lit) for K, or Quantum Fiction (modern experience influenced by quantum theory/physics) or Quasida (Arabic poetry) for Q? I really enjoy your posts, as a beginner blogger. All the best!

      • A lady we knew ran a local quilt shop for many years and then starting writing. Her first book was murder mystery with quilts a featured element. Movies, like “An American Quilt” and books like “The Prussian Pickle Club” have also had quilts as a major element. Quilts and quilt makes have a symbology that make for interesting story lines mostly focused around women’s lives and their families.
