#IWSG Why I Write Speculative Fiction


November 4 question - Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.” Authors across time and distance have had many reasons to write.

Why do you write what you write?

I write to honor the ancestors. I was told that this is what the purpose of my soul is in this life, to share our stories in a new way. 

But sometimes I also write just for fun or to hone the craft. 

I like the Speculative Fiction umbrella because gives me a good amount of room to write all the types of stories that interest me.

Speculative Fiction diagram

It doesn't list myths and legends on that diagram directly, but it's in there. (🤔 Fictional stories about characters that are probably fictional, or at least that can't be proven to be non-fictional.) 

I'm working on Book Two in my Existence series right now as part of NaNoWriMo. I might have to work on Book Three as well, since I already have a bunch of chapters done. We'll see.

Are you doing NaNoWriMo? Buddies welcome!
