F is for Fantasy

Fantasy is hands down my favorite genre to both read and write. Right now my main writing focus is a romance, but the story that holds my heart is my fantasy. To me the main enjoyment of reading is escapement and what better place to escape to than a fantasy world. Think about it. There is a reason books like Harry Potter, Twilight (though technically paranormal), and Divergent are so popular.

Something about the world of elves, witches, dragons, and other creatures keeps drawing me in. Almost every plot idea I come up with has some form of fantastical element to it. I used to try resisting it, but eventually I just gave in.

What is your favorite genre? Do you have a weakness for fantasy?

  1. The escapist thing you mentioned here is the reason why my favourite genre to write is what it is - I absolutely adore writing horror and supernatural things. My current WIP is a supernatural mystery.

    I'm thoroughly fascinated by demons, spirits, ghosts, and even extraterrestrials. That's also why I love science fiction, although am pretty new to the genre, and will pursue reading and writing it more.

    As for now, I'm "stuck" in horror, and am fine with that.

    1. I'm the opposite. Horror scares me too much. I can't handle scary movies or anyting.

  2. Not me, fantasy is not my favorite, but our house is filled with it as I have two teens, one of which wants to be a fantasy writer.

  4. My favourite genre is chick lit (or women's fiction). I like a light-hearted, amusing read.
