Mixing it up this time.

So what’s up next on the Choose Your Own Geekery front? Well, your Chosen Geek has decided to stretch his writing muscles with a good, old-fashioned genre mashup.

The idea is simple. Take two elements and put them together. Who cares if they belong together? A story about ninja assassins in Lollipop Land? Sure. Vampires and Kaiju monsters? Neat.

And so I am left with the need for genres.

Please comment here or on our Facebook page. Give me your suggestions to add to the list below. A genre, an element, a twist to the story. I will randomly (like seriously randomly) choose two of them and combine them into a mix.

  1. Cozy Mystery
  2. Young Adult Dystopian
  3. Free Verse
  4. High Fantasy
  5. Murder Whodunit
  6. Genie
  7. Sci Fi
  8. Vampires
  9. Aliens
  10. Steampunk
  11. Gothic
  12. Colonial Period
  13. Space Opera Serial

Please get your suggestions in. (And don’t worry if we go over the 10 spots there.) On May 5th, I will roll the dice and put together the first of several story beginnings. More will come and eventually…

You will need to choose.

    Space Opera Serial a la Flash Gordon/ Buck Rogers. Maybe with two “heroes” and they both figure the other one is their side kick.

    Added twist, we vote which cunning plan they attempt.

    Wait…. you can write Dystopian?
