Genre In Depth

Genre in Depth: Romance

Genre in Depth is a new series on Fictionally Sam where we delve into different genre and see how they began, their characteristics, and books within that genre, etc. New genre every first and last Wednesday of the month!

Welcome to February folks, the month of love and chocolates–or if you are super single like me, the month of single awareness. These next 28 days (especially the first 14) are a time here in the States; people from everywhere show their appreciation for those they love through grand gestures, sugary sweets, popping the big question, and taking out the trash without being asked. As for me, this month is a time where I binge read a crap ton of sappy love stories that will remind me that I’m single and my period is about to start. Like I said, a time.

But speaking of love stories–in this installment of Genre in-depth, we get to take a look at one of my top favorite genres around–you guessed it! Romance! Continue reading “Genre in Depth: Romance”

December Wrap Up

HAPPY NEW YEARS STORYTELLERS! 2018 was a whirlwind personally and professionally, both in a positive and negative ways. I have grown a lot in these 365 days and I have learned a lot not only about myself but about the world around me. I have gained so many new friends during 2018 that it almost makes up for the shitty times the year doled out to me. But in the end, honestly, I am just so looking forward to what 2019 has in store for me and this little nook in the woods.

2018 aside, December was a coo-coo month for me! I wrapped up my fall theatre season as a Stage Manager, fought my way through the crowds (my social anxiety and claustrophobia was not happy with this) for Christmas presents and decorations, and read/watched/listened to some great pieces of fiction…as well as some duds.

So grab a snack, get comfy in your footie pajamas and let’s see what all I did in the month of December!  Continue reading “December Wrap Up”
