A Goodreads user asked Theresa Van Spankeren:

Who is the difficult genre in literature? Best regards: A. Tomov – junior

Theresa Van Spankeren That is a good question, Alex. I am not sure if one genre is necessarily 'harder' than the others but I think any genre that requires research might be more time consuming than others. Getting facts right to make a believable medical drama or a story based in historical periods takes a lot of time and dedication.

I myself have poured over many a book and website (more than I can remember) over the last bunch of years and much of my work is more loosely based on fact than others' work. I give much kudos to those who research every little piece of information to ensure it is right.
