Today is Day 11 of the March Slice of Life, a daily writing challenge hosted by “Two writing Teachers”. Not only is it writing, but it is community – visiting and reading other slices and leaving comments.
I am also taking part in a writers’ challenge “Blog Hop for Writers” and this biweekly theme is “What is your Favourite Genre”
As a reader, I read most genres, but have a love of historical fiction as well as science fiction and fantasy. To imagine new world, to imagine a future provides hope for our world and scifi provides that, as well as an intriguing story. YA fits well into the fantasy genre and there have been some exceptional novels in this genre.
Really, I am drawn to any good story, although I will not read horror. I enjoy biographies and memoirs as well. It is fascinating to read about the lives of other people, especially those who have overcome much in their lives.
As a writer, I have written several romance novellas, two of which I am trying to expand. I love the picture book format and have written three so far. I am working on a middle grade novel and am enjoying the process so far.
I am reading in these genres to further my writing in these genres as well.
