Back to Writing!

Hey everybody! As I mentioned a little while ago, I’m currently working on a new novel! I took a small break from writing but will be getting back to it later today! I am very excited to continue working on this new project.

So what can I tell you about this new piece of writing that I’m working on? For one thing, it includes splash of romance in addition to being a fantasy. I came up with the idea after, for a few years now, having dreams about a crush that I had on someone from grades 1-5. For some reason, this person is constantly appearing in my dreams – even though I hardly ever think of him when I’m awake!

While I usually don’t read romance novels, I do appreciate a good love story. There have also been a few books that I’ve enjoyed that feature romance, especially James Patterson’s Sundays at Tiffany’s.

As many of you know, I enjoy writing fantasy stories and as a teen, I loved reading them. Naturally, I wanted to include fantasy in my current work and therefore, there will be some supernatural elements at play. The novel will be anything but your ordinary love story.

In addition to adding some romance to the story, another unique trait of the novel will be the style in which it is written. Without going into too much detail, it will be written in a way slightly different than the usual first or third person point of view. It will be easy to follow, but more complex in nature. This is a bit of a challenge for me, but I hope that it will be a very rewarding one at that.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this sneak peak into what I’m currently working on! Stay tuned for more information and don’t forget to check out my Instagram page! Thank you!

Goodreads Sci-Fi and Fantasy Week: Why I Like the Genres

This week on the site Goodreads, they’re celebrating the genres of Sci-Fi and Fantasy – two genres that I like very much. While I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi books per say, I am a fan of science fiction movies. I’m also a fan of fantasy books.

I think one of the first sci-fi movies I ever saw was Back to the Future, a movie that has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. I love the characters, the plot, and of course, the idea of time travel. Do I believe that it would ever be possible to travel through time? No. Do I think it’s an awesome concept? Absolutely!

I’ve seen many sci-fi movies and TV shows – Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Jaws, Spider-Man, Superman, AI, Armageddon, ET, Quantum Leap, too many to name. In addition, I’ve read many fantasy novels and short stories – Ink Heart, Harry Potter, Wicked, etc. Science Fiction and Fantasy are two of the most imaginative genres out there!

That’s the great thing about fantasy and science fiction – almost anything goes! It’s fun to play around with reality and see what one can come up with. Let’s face it, sometimes we want to think about other things besides what happens in our daily lives. Fantasizing about the ‘what-ifs’ can be an entertaining thing to do as long as the what-ifs don’t cause us stress and anxiety.

Perhaps my love for fantasy and science fiction is why the two books I wrote are of the fantasy genre. Fantasy is so much fun to write! With fantasy, you can just let your mind wander and see what it comes up with – some of the best stories come from thinking outside the box!

Like fantasy, science fiction is extremely flexible when it comes to what you can do with it. The strangest concepts can be molded into amazing stories if done so properly.

Real life is far from boring – exciting things happen all the time. However, I think we can all agree that once in a while, it’s fun to imagine a world where fantastical and supernatural things occur. I really do believe that science fiction and fantasy are two very important, fun genres. They both help to open the mind!

What are your favorite sci-fi and fantasy movies and TV shows? Favorite books that fall into these two genres? What science fiction and fantasy concepts are your favorites? Here is are some sci-fi and fantasy shows, movies, and books that I recommend:
