    I feel the same way about Literary, yet, my 2nd novel was stuck under that category. I’m still not sure why. When I first started writing novels back in 1981, I had to look up what literary was. Love your list, Juneta. We have the same tastes.

    I like to read speculative fiction. It’s one of my go-to genres to read when I’m looking for something new 🙂

    You nailed it! Yes, I did read a lot of literary fiction in school. One teacher said the first sentence of any story lets you know the theme. So there’s much to learn from reading (and sometimes enjoying) literary fiction. But . . . my first choice is escape. You named all those great categories that let us go on adventures and escape the political, geographic, and social realities for a bit. And write what you love. Who could argue with that. I love history so I began with historical fiction and now am beginning a new series of art crime mysteries — with some connection to history. Have a great month!

    I would hate writing literary. Never liked reading it either.

      I can probably count on one hand how literary I have read and enjoyed in my life. Actually I can’t do that cause can’t name any right now.

    I read to escape as well, so speculative fiction is my favorite to write.

    I didn’t think of literary, but it’s a great answer. I like to read to escape too and don’t enjoy reading literary. So I wouldn’t want to write in that genre.
