Mix Genres ( comedy will be a drama )
Question: For more than 100 stories that I wrote (ALL ARE HIATUS :P and most of it are just a story goals) I HAVEN'T BEEN STUCK IN ONE GENRE. I am always starting in Funny moments or comedic something then after it will be sad due to problems/consequences. Then as it goes on, it will be a pure drama, the comedy will be washed out. haha ! What do you think ?
P.S I LOVE YOU MR. GLEN !!! >_<Answer:
Technically, all stories are dramas. Humour and pathos are two modes of storytelling. Switching between the two is a great technique to heighten the emotional impact of a story.
For example, if you've ever read the Harry Potter
books, J. K. Rowling does a great job of alternating funny and sad moments. In fact, most of her chapters will begin on one emotion and end on another.
So I wouldn't worry about it. Just ask yourself if you are achieving the emotional impact you want.
P.S. Expressions of affection, though flattering, are somewhat inappropriate on a forum like this. Shame on you! :)
