Look on the internet to find some of the recent add-ons. The complete ridiculous list!
Writing is labeled these days into Literary and Mainstream (more or less, this changes and grows as well)
LITERARY - Written with a philosophical view and cultured expression. Tends to be about human shortcomings. Not necessarily plot driven, but focused more on character traits and period. Examples include John Updike and Sue Monk Kidd. Typical length: 95,000 - 220,000.
MAINSTREAM - Written in everyday, less scholarly, language. Writing aimed at the widest audience and highest popularity. Examples: James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks. Typical length: 80,000 - 180,000.
Tomorrow I'll continue with a list of genres popular today.
