At least from the viewpoint of the library, publishing, and bookselling world, there is a distinction between the types of adult fiction. There's genre writing, which tends to fall in certain categories that have certain convetions, and then there's literary writing, which is pretty much everything else. From what I can see the latter tends to be viewed as far more serious, though that is not always the case. I'm curious, if in your adult fiction, you tend to write more along the lines of genres or anything but. Also, what do you think about the distinctions in general? Are they unfairly limiting? Personally, I find that it's a lot easier to write without genre in novels than it is in short stories, and my writing reflects that. Since I don't use descriptions in my writing for the most part, it's very hard for me to extend the specifics found in a genre to full length, whereas with literature I can just go on about whatever I want.
