Considering that Dark, Romance, and Fantasy are the top three, it makes sense why Twilight was so popular.

No, wait. It still doesn't.

Dark fantasy, adventure, mystery (although I'm not to good at writing it as of it yet) and just plain, normal fantasy.
Fantasy for the win! XD

I write more scary/horror stories with paranormal. They can't really be classified as either dark or fantasy to I opted for the other category. : :smt001

Dark/Action-adventure: Shadowed Tracks: my novel. If you want to read, click here: novel.php?id=2044
Laments of passion
Obstructed by fear.
Under guises of jovial chatter;
Incredulous hopes
Steadily feasting away-
Eating away at my heart.

I tend to write Dark, but I foray into sci-fi occasionally. My one rule: no romance, ever, unless it is absolutely necessary to further a plot. And then I usually try to corrupt it as much as possible.

I'm writing in a new genre better known as Facebook fiction. Because it's fiction work based on Facebook.

Gosh I love the 'shopaholic' series!
That aside, I would definitely write most in 'romance'. Not because I'm a mushy teenager with nothing better to do, but because it's interesting to write about. All the emotions and that sort of thing :)

Fantasy's alright too. I'll admit to being a massive Harry Potter fan, though I'd never go into that childish area, nor have the pure genius to think up a seven-book long plot.

That's about it at the moment :)

Fantasy: Wizards and witches are my favorite. I also like both reading and writing adventure stories.

Historical: I like to write stories about how things came to be in a very magical way.

Romance: Not the sweet kind of thing but the ones that tell about longing and desperateness.

Dark: I simply love horror stories!

Sci-fi: Just for a fact, Sci-fi doesn't only concern technology and Outer Space but also magical worlds. We can consider some Sci-fi to be fantasy too.
Need some feed? Then read some! Take a look at today's Squills at In the News.
