Book Genres

Day 14 of the #FridayWritesBlogChallenge

Today’s Topic: What’s your favorite book genre?

Usually, when people ask me to talk about my favorite genre of book I talk about the books I don’t like.

As I’ve grown wiser, I’ve learned deflection is a defense mechanism that prevents people from really getting to know you. So, here goes. 

My favorite book genre is short science-fiction. I like finding the largest anthology of sci-fi current to the year and going through each story. 

It’s just like watching Black Mirror or the Twilight Zone, but the plots and epiphanies hit like anvils and the stories are pure watersheds of inspiration.

I enjoy a few other genres. Especially books that blend elements of sci-fi and fantasy or mystery and horror, all of which make for a good read.

I find the territory on the fringes of genres has the most significant landscape for growth when writing. It’s like exploring uncharted territory. 

Keep reading and keep writing. 

Stay connected.
