IWSG: Favorite Genres to Write

Question of the Day:

Of all the genres you read and write, which is your favorite to write in and why?

Fantasy is the most fun. Science fiction and creative nonfiction are usually the most fulfilling.

Creative non-fiction helps me deal with my own past.

My love for writing science fiction helps me sort through my feelings about people today and our relationships with technology.

I feel that fantasy is the most fun to write because of the thousands of years of human stories that can be explored for inspiration: historical facts for historical fantasy, fairy tales and old folklore for contemporary stories, and all the ways past stories combine in in new environments for futuristic and other-world fantasies.

  1. I love the way writers can use science fiction as a way to comment on contemporary society

  2. Fantasy lets you ‘create’ other rules for the ‘world’ you create. Science Fiction you have to use the ‘known rules’ but bend society’s rules. Both lead to interesting stories.
