From shapeshifters and fire manipulators to invisible girls and freakishly strong men, people with superpowers always make interesting characters. So, why don’t you write about them? 

If it’s because you’re concerned that these characters would limit you to the superhero genre, you don’t have to worry because it won’t. Stories about superpowers can range from a variety of genres, from young adult fiction and children’s literature to horror and dystopian. 

One example of a story that incorporates superpowers, but does not revolve around superheroes, is Matilda by Roald Dahl—a fantasy children’s book about a very intelligent five-and-half-year-old girl who discovers she has telekinesis. Another is Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi—a young adult dystopian thriller that follows a 17-year-old girl who can take the energy of living organisms by touching them.
