Literary Genres of a non-specific nature:
List-writing – (the most important)
Fiction, of course can be written in various other sub-genres or even a hybrid of one or more. Fiction can include, but is not limited to:
Drama (in a broad sense obviously)
I have chosen to mildly define, and subsequently write a few fictitious lines in, the sub-genre of Horror. I chose this because of my inability to write Horror and I find it immensely challenging to avoid a situation that involves public humiliation at my expense.
Horror – A genre in which fear and suspense are provoked from within the viewer, usually through means of violence, gore, and more often than not, the supernatural.
*My few lines*
‘It was too dark to see anything’. That was my final thought before the lights flashed on and revealed to me the true nature of my prison. I suddenly realised I was inexorably trapped within a carnival of sinister intent, the irony of my being here under such grave circumstances made me bitter with rage. I became jealous of the others, jealous of their quick release, a gift that had not been bestowed upon me. Instead I was subjected to the fiercest of torment, forced to become a fugitive from a supernatural madman like the nameless protagonist from a generic horror movie.
