    What genre would your life be in?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Gerald Bunch, Jun 2, 2016.

    My life has always revolved around darkness. I cannot help the genre I write in, it calls out to me, I am a slave to it. I would have to choose thriller for that reason.

    Mine would be like the movie Waitress, small town weirdos having fun but with a little bit of a darker element.

    The type where a hard laugh slowly transitions into a good cry.

    A coming-of-age story with some quaint, near soap-opera twists. not life-changing soap-opera twists, and no resolutions either.

    If I had my choice, fantasy. But, in all reality, it's way more drama and horror.

    I think mine would be a short story anthology. Same author, but the protagonist changes, sometimes drastically, and not all stories are in same genre.

    All my stories tend to be very dark. I think there is no choice for me.

    A fairy tale, without doubt! Though the jury is still out if the fairies are the good guys or of the darker variety ;)

    Somewhere in the middle of Sci-fi and Warhammer 40kish. Maybe a little comedy thrown into the mix.

    Something between a tragic comedy and a comedic tragedy. I think that it's so surreal that it would not make sense to the reader. It would be hard to follow. Damn! It's even hard for me to follow. Sometimes the best solution is to look the other way and la-la-la the situation away. Hm... I think I might have found an interesting lyric verse... :p

    I'd have to say that my life is a static fantasy, only without taking place in medieval Europe. Some episodes are comedy, drama, and horror. Actually, it might be in a crapsaccharine setting, because I try to put emphasis on comedy and fun, but the horror lurks just underneath, and nothing is as bright as it appears...

    I'd like to think that my life is high-fantasy, but that's not true: it's actually a soap opera, the pleasantness of which would be greatly increased with the addition of high fantasy elements.

    Fantasy, without a doubt fantasy. With a sprinkle of Science fiction for good measure:D

    Low tragedy, like American Beauty. You know it's going to end badly, the fun is in figuring out exactly when and how.

    Metafiction. I've heard and seen drama, but I've never experienced drama. Nothing exciting has ever happened to me. It's the same monotonous cycle of academics and drawing and sleep. I don't even know the date half of the time. My friends and I discuss existential philosophy for fun and talk about the things we could be doing instead. But we don't do anything else.

    Actually, typing this post has helped me understand why I enjoy writing and concept art so much. I manufacture drama to escape my boredom.
