    I got sci-fi, and currently I’m writing a dystopia, so yeah. I’m also writing a fantasy too.

    It says romance, but so far, I’ve only written one story on the genre… And it wasn’t fit for the topic…

    Remember that genre doesn’t always have to define what you write! You can blend whatever genres you like, for example a mystery set in an alien world. Break genre rules and certain publishers might be apprehensive about taking you on, but others will know originality when they see it. There’s a lack of new literary fiction at the moment which is in itself a genre: look into it if you like character-driven, as opposed to plot-driven, stories with slightly experimental language.

    As a writer, I can say that choosing a genre for a book is one of the most important tasks, I really love science fiction and detective stories. I have already written a few short stories. You can read my essay about the novel “Things fall apart” at https://samples.edusson.com/things-fall-apart/, also you will find many essay samples there. I think it will be interesting for you as a beginner.
