It’s hard for me to choose a specific genre to call my favorite because I read and write such a great variety of works. I see myself as a more poetry oriented person. While I love reading novels and getting into stories, I lean heavily into writing poetry. I’m not sure why that is exactly, I just know that something about creating such an intimate connection with the reader in such a short amount of time feels encouraging to me, which many people would disagree with.
