It’s once again that time. Another month, another posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). Thank you to our fabulous co-hosts this month: Stephen Tremp, Pat Garcia, Angela Wooldridge, Victoria Marie Lees, and Madeline Mora-Summonte!
Today’s question – What do you love about the genre you write in most often?
My favorite thing about the fantasy genre, the genre of choice for my current WIP, is the possibilities. Fantasy has many tropes that readers expect and many character types who often populate its worlds, and yet, within those areas, there are so many combinations. Fantasy readers also seem more open to the unusual which seems unique within the book world. I love the openness and extent of the creative field open to me.
What about you? What’s your favorite genre to read?
Time for the news.We are on the cusp of the start of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. Two more days. Two. I wasn’t as excited before now, but looking up the start dates just made it real. February 9th. I’m stoked. Who else is excited?
This first story shows images of the cutest Olympic cheerleaders I’ve seen. I just want to hold them and squish them all.
This has many interesting applications but seems incredible creepy to me. Twilight Zone began playing in my head as I read it.
And in science news, the asteroid did more than strike the earth to kill the dinosaurs. Scientists long ago added increased volcanism to the mix, but I had no idea that the asteroid strike could trigger the eruptions. Our planet is so interesting!
That’ll do it for me tonight. See you back here in seven. We’ll be five days into the Olympics by then. 🙂
