Question for this month: What do you love about the genre you write in most often?
When I discovered writing as a girl, my first story I ever wrote was horror. Ever since then, I’ve mostly wrote horror stories, or dark fantasy, or dark poetry. Nothing truly had a happy ending.
Was this how I really felt about life in general?
Yeah, for a long time, I did.
But, there was always this other side of me that dared to hope, and dream, and wonder about the magical and beautiful aspects of life; and many times these involved this concept called…love.
I’ve always enjoyed reading both fantasy and horror books.
Romance novels? I devoured them. I never could get enough. It was a wonderful feeling when you get to the end of a book, and there’s a happy ending!
Real life doesn’t always have a happy ending. In fact, for many there’s only sadness and pain and emptiness. It’s nice to be able to open up a book and get lost in it, in another person’s life, and be able to feel what they feel, and experience what they experience, and leave your own unhappy reality behind for a while.
These are some of the reasons why I love the Romance genre. And why I’ve decided to write in this genre for my very first book.
What about you? Which genre do you enjoy most, and why?
