IWSG: Best Characteristics of My Favorite Genre

October is here! I love the change of seasons, and I especially love going into autumn with the vibrant colors, knowing that nature is prepping for a period of rest and restoration.

It's also the first Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for another installment of Insecure Writer's Support Group. If you haven't yet, be sure to check out their website:

This Month's Question: What do you consider the best characteristics of your favorite genre?

My Answer: The thriller genre is my favorite to read and write. I love the embedded tension and the need to read faster in order to find out what is going to happen next. I love feeling like I can't set the book down, being compelled to keep turning the pages. Plus, the thriller genre has so many sub-genres and companion genres, which add variety and a change of pace while still being fast-paced page-turners.

How about you? What are the best characteristics of your favorite genre?


  1. I can totally see that with mysteries. It's why I like romantic suspense better than straight-up romance--there's more tension to keep you reading when you should go to sleep.

  2. I love thrillers as well. I love that my brain is challenged and the fun factor of it all is just very satisfying to me :D
