    Okay, I’m 12, give me a break.
    I know sorta what theme means (like sci-fi, medieval-nearly spelled that mid-evil- fantasy, etc) but what’s it really mean?

    @ashlyvye Great question. It can be confusing because the word has a wide variety of uses in normal English, but in the writing world it has a very specific definition.

    What you’re thinking of is genres. When writers use the term theme, they mean something different.

    Here’s an article I wrote that explains what theme is and gives some basic tips for how to apply it in your writing. http://writershelpingwriters.net/2018/02/theme-made-simple/
