"Competition" is an interesting way of putting it  Perhaps it's more blunt than I'm used to.

There are no real tricks or techniques to it, I'd say. Write the story you want to write. Obey the trends and the market at your own peril. Don't write a dystopian YA novel unless you feel truly compelled to, you know? A good story stands stronger than a good trend.
