For nearly four years now, I’ve been seriously working on my own writing projects, including NaNoWriMo and several other novels. However, not until now have I come to the understanding that I am primarily a Young Adult Science Fiction writer and that I hardly write anything else.
That is, until I started writing an Epic Fantasy (or high fantasy, whichever you prefer) novel this spring. I didn’t really think about it, I just wanted to jump into it and complete my all-time wish to write a novel with a great huge story.
But as it turns out, Sci-Fi and Epic Fantasy are two very different genres to write. So what did I understand after writing the first few chapters?
