We’re a big genre here. We’re also one of the broadest, and as a result, one of the most eclectic. I’ve met people in this category who cross-identify with basically every other genre on Wattpad, and whose books contain anything from the barest scrapings of magic to full-fledged high-Fantasy worlds.
To be completely honest, my books fall into several genres, but I call them all Fantasy because it’s less complicated that way, and the most active on the forums. None of my secondary genres give me any leaning towards a Fantasy subgenre, but if yours do, I’ll leave it up to you to decide how you consider them—for example, whether you see your books as Fantasy with a Sci-Fi secondary genre, or just Science Fantasy.
If you have books with differing answers to the questions below, pick your dominant tendency, or pick one book. Can be your current WIP, your favourite book, your most popular, whatever.
I’ve got three questions:
How strongly does Fantasy factor into the genre of your books?
- My books are only Fantasy
- My books are primarily Fantasy, but have a lesser secondary genre
- My books are both Fantasy and some other genre
- My books are another genre with elements of Fantasy
- My books aren’t Fantasy, but I hang out here anyway
If applicable, what is/are your secondary or other genre(s)?
*Applies to people with non-Fantasy books as well
**Other includes Historical Fiction, which I forgot to add
- Chick Lit
- Fan Fic
- Teen Fic
If applicable, do you also hang out in the forum category of your secondary or other genre?
*Also applies to people whose books aren’t Fantasy, but who still hang out here
- Yes, more than here
- Yes, as much as here
- Yes, but less than here
- Basically no
Feel free to discuss!
