Which Genre Am I?

My life is a tragedy really the only doubt I have is what exactly my tragic flaw, moral weakness or inability is.

Tragedy
1: A drama or literary work in which the main character is brought to ruin or suffers extreme sorrow, especially as a consequence of a tragic flaw, moral weakness, or inability to cope with unfavorable circumstances.

I wish it was a comedy.

Comedy
1: A dramatic work that is light and often humorous or satirical in tone and that usually contains a happy resolution of the thematic conflict.

I wish I would stop making it a travesty

Travesty
1: An exaggerated or grotesque imitation, such as a parody of a literary work
2:A debased or grotesque likeness: a travesty of justice.

And just be happy with me....

Therefore, I think I am going to create my own genre.

I am going to call it Self Reflected Realism it is part porn, part tragedy, part comedy, I am going to leave the imitation and drama to others who do it better.

I am excited not only for the happy ending of this one but also the multiple climaxes.

It is in the end, all about climaxing isn't it. Life itself exists and hopefully ends with a climax.

I think my life is just a bad porno. haha Of course that in itself is a tragedy...or a comedy?

I have to admit I'm a fan of independent movies that don't end with a conventional climax. The kind of movie where once the credits roll, my wife says, "That's how it's gonna end?" Probably how a lot of people's lives end, actually.

I am just trying not to have to go pee during the good parts of the movie that is my life. Sometimes I regret the choices the writer made way back when, even though I know that guy was only doing the best he knew how at that particular time.
