Hi! My short story is about ghosts, would I post that under Sci-Fi fiction or Fantasy? Thanks!

P.S. sorry if this is the wrong place to ask! Just thought I'd try and see :)

Hi there! Personally, I don't really mind, but I'd probably post it in Fantasy :)

Hello NYCnightowl007,

I totally agree with Demeter, it doesn't really matter and it's just a personal opinion type thing. Whichever place you post it in there will be someone that disagrees so you should just go for it and post it wherever you want. After all, it is your writing and only you can know for sure!

Hope this helps!

You could also post your story in General. That's where all the stories that don't fit in a particular forum go.

There are no chickens in Hyrule.

This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much all of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movement of small green pieces of paper, which was odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
— Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
