Writing Tips Part 1: Section A

Every week, I will post subject topics for novel(and series) writing.
Writing Tips Part 1: Genres
Section A: The Basics

The first thing to think about when writing is what you want to write about.
Do you want to write a story about futuristic dystopias, or a galaxy spanning epic? Or do you want to write about a fantasy land filled with magic, mystic creatures, and battles? Or do you want to write about real life, whether its past or present. Or even history and science.
Whatever you enjoy, you might like to know the names of the different genres-which I will discuss in depth during next few days. So now I will just say the names.
Here are some of the major ones.

1: Science Fiction (which can be split up into many sub-genres)
2: Fantasy (which can be split into separate sub-genres)
3: Historical Fiction
4: Contemporary Life
5: Mystery
There are other genres, such as Romance and Horror, that can be applied to the above and I will talk about them in either this part or in later ones.
So, let us embark on this writing journey my writer friends, for our stories unlock gates to whatever our mind's can imagine. :)
