2005-06-29 [-deleted-]: :O erm .. well .. yeah, don't bother
2005-06-29 [Veltzeh]: Hm, maybe we should add the already existing genres and their descriptions too...
2005-06-30 [Veltzeh]: Wouldn't saga and epic be nearly the same, or at least similar?
2005-06-30 [Shanra]: Similar, but while a saga focusses on one family epic spans whole countries. TLoTR is epic, but it's not a saga. At least, that's how the descriptions seem to me. I'm still trying to shake the meaning of a similar Dutch words. ^_^;;
2005-06-30 [Janouk]: I know about the Darren Shan saga though, which isn't exactly about a family, more about one person...
2005-06-30 [-deleted-]: I'd agree with Janouk - Sagas are normally on a smaller basis then an epic i.e. a family like Shanra said.
2005-08-11 [-deleted-]: Font, do you think it is time to suggest any of these to hedda?
2005-08-11 [Font]: I already have, but he is busy with hardware and moving.
2005-08-11 [-deleted-]: Oh right, thanks. :)
2005-08-11 [-deleted-]: Veltzeh, could you just clarify what a 'travel' novel would be? Or give an example?
2005-08-11 [Font]: Doesn't necessarily have to be a novel, it could be a travel guide.
2005-08-11 [Veltzeh]: Well, I can, but I didn't put that there so maybe you shouldn't ask from me... Well, I'd think it could be like a journal that you make when you travel. It could be fiction or non-fiction as far as I care.
2005-08-11 [-deleted-]: Oh okay I get you both - I was just curious how you define travel.
2005-08-11 [Veltzeh]: Oh hey. I think that the 23rd choice (Play) should be in the "style" category and not the "genre" category. Can we have a separate Possible Styles wiki someplace? X)
2005-08-11 [Font]: Is writing a play, a form of style?
2005-08-11 [Veltzeh]: It's as much a style as novel, short story and poetry, at least... that's what I was talking about.
2005-08-11 [Font]: A play is as much a non-narrative genre as an essay
2005-08-11 [Veltzeh]: Ah, yeah. That too could be put into the "style" category thing, I guess. Will we be able to make suggestions for those, too?
2005-08-11 [Font]: yea sure! ^_^ I would like to see this list narrowed down a bit too. So perhaps style could be created with : novel, poetry, short, play, essay etc
2005-08-11 [Veltzeh]: Yep, sounds good :) So, who will make the wiki and so on?
2005-08-11 [Font]: If no one else volunteers I will :P
