I have eclectic tastes. I like books and movies from most genres. When it comes to decor I am torn between classic and modern. My collection of music ranges from Wolfstone to Twisted Sister to Trans-Siberian Orchestra and beyond. And yet, my writing is, almost exclusively, fantasy.
I’ve mentioned before that I love fantasy because I get to make up my own rules. This has a lot to do with why I don’t write much else. When I try to write something in the real world, the rules I don’t know get in the way. I don’t know the setting perfectly and someone else might call me out on it. I don’t always know how certain ages talk or ac, but in fantasy I can create cultural rules to atone for any discrepancies.
I am thankful that other people have the gift for writing “real world” fiction, because I love it. I just don’t like to write it myself.
Take care, fellow travelers.
