Today is February's contribution to Alex Cavanaugh's Insecure Writers Support Group.
Why am I an Insecure Writer this month?
Because I forgot this was the first Wednesday in February, which means my IWSG post is due. Arg!!!!
My only excuse is that it’s been a busy week for me, writing-wise. My monthly SCBWI meeting was on Saturday, I met with one of my critique groups on Monday evening, and my other critique group meets tomorrow night. At least I'm keeping busy.
Thank goodness the IWSG supplies an optional question to answer every month.
What do you love about the genre you write in most often?
I write fantasy for the same reason I read it. The sense of wonder. I love escaping to worlds different from the one I live in. But it's not just about escapism. I love how fantasy (and science fiction) trigger my imagination, letting me see and experience things that would never happen in real life (or at least not in my lifetime).
I enjoy reading mysteries and thrillers too, but wrap them in a fantasy setting and those stories just seem to pop for me.
My IWSG post is kind of short today, but that just means you all have more time to visit the other writers in this blog hop.
So go forth and read!
And don't forget to stop by this month's co-hosts. Stephen Tremp, Pat Garcia, Angela Wooldridge, Victoria Marie Lees, and Madeline Mora-Summonte!
