I kept trying to remind myself to thank all of you for your words of encouragement the night of my MFA workshop.
The workshop went well...I got some GREAT feedback and left feeling inspired and ready to write again. Phew!
However, during the conversation a little word got thrown around quite a bit.
A word my agent also threw around when we were talking about my new novel.
A word that I have never dreamed would be associated with me.
Everyone thinks that the start of my book sets up and could easily have some paranormal elements to it.
I never thought that I would say this, but....
We'll see where this leads me. I think it will end up being more magical realism than paranormal, which is fine with me. There's some magical realism books that have come out lately that I adore. It may add a really cool element to my story. And if I don't like it, whose to say I can go back to making it a contemporary story?
So once again, wish me luck!
What about you? What's a genre that you could never see yourself writing in????
