Ask the Question: Why do you write in your genre?

And my next experiment is... Ask the Question!

On the third Friday of every month I will pose a question. I will then answer it for myself and wait to hear about your responses the same question.

Why do you write in your genre?

My Genre: Science Fiction and Fantasy (aka Speculative Fiction)

Real life is boring. I like to read about the impossible because it sparks my imagination and takes me away from the real world. Sci-fi and fantasy are what I like to read, watch, play, dream. Yes I have other interests in these areas. For example - I really like to read historical fiction and I love watching crime dramas on TV. But I don't write in these genre's because they don't capture my imagination. They just entertain me.

How about you?


  1. Great question, Krista! And I agree, real life is kinda boring. I like watching crime dramas too, but I wouldn't write them. It's just entertaining to watch; NCIS is my favorite. :)

    I write fantasy. I tried writing Christian fiction, but I just didn't like it as much. With fantasy, everything you dream can become real with no limits - wings and magic. I love it! :)

  2. Great question! I went on and on about my various reasons for loving fantasy in this old blog post:
