So what are the easiest genres to write? Do you like writing? Have you ever dreamt of writing something, some time? Now you should read Insider Monkey’s article about the easiest genres to write. Writing is not easy. At first you need to find out the genre, the topic. Professional and creative writing are not the same. If you want to try yourself as a freelancer there are good sites where you find your way.

You can be a fresher or an experienced writer; there are some things that are important for you to know. Of you have to find out what to write about. It is better but not necessary if you decide the genre. Many authors simple start writing and then the story will grow in its natural way. But you should make a plan at first, as you need to create the structure of your book, and regardless which genre you choose, all genres have rules. For example you have a fantastic idea for writing a romance, and you have figured out the characters, scene and so on. But if you don’t pay attention to the details, you can fail.

In order to be a good help, Insider Monkey has consulted sites like Writer’s Relief, Reddit, Message Board, Huffington Post and Now Novel. After checking what is written about the genres, Insider Monkey compiled the list. Now we have picked two genres from the list: erotica and fantasy. Erotica is subgenre of fiction and romance, but it focuses an sexual scenes much more than the characters and the plot. Everything is around erotica, but if you feel uncomfortable on dealing with it, then it’s not your genre. Fantasy is very popular, both in writing and in reading. It is easier if you are creative and like tales. Although fictional, your characters and everything else needs to make sense, so make sure that you are not just copying other famous works. But it is true if you chose this only because it is easy to write – this topic is not for you. And it is true for all genres.
