Genres I read, write and want to write – Blogging Insights #33


What is your passion with regards writing genres ?
I like to write about life, nature, relationships, personal experiences, self love, mental health and other similar things.

What is your chosen genre?
Life. I like to talk about personal experiences. Though I started with penning down poems, I write more about my life in prose.

What is the genre you might like to write about but lack confidence to start?
Mental health. I didn’t know how to talk about it openly. But coronavirus and Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death (which was initially suspected to be a suicide) prompted me to start talking about it. In the last couple of months, I have written several articles related to mental health. Read them here:

I would like to try my hands at crime, detective and thriller as I love reading it. But I’m not sure how to keep the suspense.

What is your fav genre: to read? to write?

    1. For me, it’s just surprising… Do you scroll through your old writeups on blog or diary or wherever you write?
      When I do it once in a blue moon, I see how much things have changed.

  1. I love reading and writing confessionals, experience-based articles, and sci-fi/fantasy. My latest novels have been mostly sci-fi, but I’m thinking of branching into a bit of fantasy and even humour.

    It was great reading and learning more about you. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Sylvia Plath introduced me to confessionals. It was just amazing. But I’ve not read much of confessional writings. Which confessional writers do you like?
      Fantasy and humour seem interesting to me too. What kind of humour do you prefer?

  2. I have seen God work in so many surprising, serendipity moments, and I love to share my little (and big) “God stories.” But I have so many, and one will remind me of another (eye roll) it seems better top write them down in a book (or blog) for people to read as much or as little as they want. This is my favorite genre, I think – the testimony. People tell me I write the way I talk, and that reading something of mine is like having me sitting in their kitchen sharing over a cup of coffee. 🙂

    1. Haha! It happens with me too. I get so many ideas that I end up listing 10 new ideas even before I’m done writing the first one 😀
      That’s really a beautiful compliment you’ve received. In a world full of Instagram and Snapchat filters, being honest with your thoughts on the blog, it’s not that easy for everyone.
