The Literary Genre of Your Book.

The Literary Genre of Your Book

Which literary genre would be best suited for your book?

A category of literature. The main literary genres are fiction and nonfiction, (poetry and drama). Literary genres include other forms of writing that use language to convey ideas. The most popular types of books fall into these categories.

Knowing the GENRE of a text can help you understand it better.
If it is fiction, then you know you are about to here a story with a beginning, middle and end. 

If it is nonfiction, then you know you must slow your reading rate and underline the important facts and details in the paragraphs. 

NON-FICTION/Informational: real, factual, deals with actual people, places, and events, gives information about a topic in an organized way

FICTION: unreal, not true, not factual, a made up story 

Here's how to figure it out.
To determine what type of book you should write, think about your goals. What do you hope to accomplish with your book? Do you want to share your knowledge with others? Are you looking for financial gain? If so, consider self-publishing. This option allows you to publish your book without going through an agent or publisher. It also gives you complete control over the final product. However, there are some downsides to self-publishing. You will need to market yourself as a writer and promote your work. Also, you won't receive royalties until after your book has been published.

Choose a topic.
Once you've decided on a topic, choose a literary genre. There are several different genres available, such as memoir, nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and more. Think about what kind of story you'd like to tell. Is it a personal story? A historical account? An adventure tale? Consider how you might use these elements to make your story unique.

Nonfiction: writing that is true
Fiction: imaginative or made up writing
Drama: a play or script
Poetry: writing concerned with the beauty     of language
Nonfiction Subgenres 
Autobiography: life story written by oneself
Biography: Writing about someone else’s life

Fiction Subgenres 
Historical Fiction: set in the past and based on real people and/or events
Science Fiction: has aliens, robots, futuristic technology and/or space ships
Realistic Fiction: has no elements of fantasy; could be true but isn’t
Fantasy: has monsters, magic, or characters with superpowers

Determine whether your book will appeal to an audience or just to yourself.
If you're writing a memoir, consider whether you'll share your experiences with others. You may decide to write a memoir because you feel compelled to share your life's journey with others. Or maybe you want to help other people who are going through similar situations. Whatever your reason, there are plenty of benefits to sharing your story. It gives you a chance to reflect on your past and learn from your mistakes. It also helps you gain insight into the lives of others. And finally, it allows you to connect with others who understand what you went through.

Decide what kind of story you'd like to tell.
There are several different kinds of stories that fall under the category of memoir. These include personal essays, true crime stories, and biographies. Each type has its own unique characteristics. Personal essays tend to focus on one individual's life. True crime stories often involve crimes committed by real people. Biographies usually cover the life of an influential figure.

Write down the elements of your story.
You should also consider how much detail you want to include in your book. If you're writing a biography, you'll need to provide as much detail as possible about the subject's childhood, education, career, and family. A true crime story will likely only include the facts surrounding the crime itself. An essay might include more details about the author's thoughts and feelings during the events.
