The Jolly Genre Jubilee Tag

I stole this tag from Chelsea because it looked so fun. So without further ado . . .

What is your favorite genre of fiction to write?
Fantasy. (Just get used to me saying fantasy a lot.) It’s my all-time favorite genre.

What genre would you NEVER get caught writing? . . .EVER.
Horror. Like, if you ever see me publish anything under the horror umbrella, assume it was my evil twin and send a fire-breathing dragon to incinerate it.

Yup.

What fictional genre feels most like home to you?
Um, fantasy? No, definitely fantasy. It’s my comfort zone. A safe place to create worlds, characters, and address issues I never would in any other genre.

If you could transform your real life into any genre of your choosing, which would it be?
Okay, I’m going to be more specific with this one. Portal fantasy. Like, seriously, send me to a different time in history (or Narnia. I’m okay with that) and I’ll be quite happy.

What genre does your real life most resemble at the moment?
Yikes. Hmm . . . some crossover between paranormal (think, mythical canine creatures taking over all life) and epic quest fantasy (don’t ask).

What’s a genre you’re interested in writing, even though you’ve never written it before?
Just one?

Historical fiction, historical fantasy, sci-fi, urban fantasy, paranormal, dark fantasy, Arthurian fantasy . . . Need I go on?

What genre is your most recent plot bunny, and where did it come from?
Oh, glad you asked. 😉

I have this idea that is a total plot bunny in, like, a contemporary mystery genre . . . or supernatural, or something like that. The idea came from the TV series The Chosen and it started with a question (which is unusual for this die-hard character-first writer): “How much would you sacrifice to see God?”

We shall see if that goes anywhere . . .

How many genres have you written thus far in your writing journey?
I feel called out . . .

Portal fantasy, other fantasy, other other fantasy, some contemporary short stories, one attempt at an EMP thriller (actually finished it, but we won’t go there).

I’m a little stuck on the whole fantasy deal. 😉

Your turn! Answer a couple of these in the comments or steal the tag for yourself.

    What is your favorite genre of fiction to write?
    It really depends on what type my “work-in-progress” is. I tend to get immerse in the genre where the ideas are currently flowing. I have a particular love for both fantasy and science fiction, but love pirates and the works of Robert Louis Stevenson style adventures.

    What genre would you NEVER get caught writing? . . .EVER.
    Probably romance. Just…bleh…not really something I can find myself getting past as few sentences.

    What fictional genre feels most like home to you?
    Fantasy feels really good right now.

    If you could transform your real life into any genre of your choosing, which would it be?
    Perhaps a historical adventure or a classic western.

    Dystopian science fiction

    Steam Punk Fantasy

    Science Fiction – The idea of humans being remotely programmed by nefarious government agencies. I’d call it “You’ve Been Hacked”. That bunny is leaping right now, probably doing some weird cartwheels and somersaults, but I MUST FOCUS on my current WIP for now.

    Fantasy Thriller, Caller Comedy, Children’s Fantasy, Military conflict, Science Fiction, Western, Detective story, Supernatural thriller, Adventure, Historical/Biblical fiction, Espionage thriller, Animal Stories, Period Issue Stories, Gothic tales, Psychological thriller, Medieval Stories, etc.

      1. Part of it would feel like a horror story, so I would need to pray that one through, get a solid grounding in my Biblical support, before plunging into the darkness associated with it, It is a worthwhile effort, but God is leading in this fantasy tale I need to complete too.
