I had just enough people to make this fly. Whew. If anyone else joins in the weeks that follow, I will welcome them in a future post and add their name to the list.
I write a lot of fantasy. That is my biggest genre. I would describe myself as a Fantasy writer first and foremost, with a little touch of other stuff that I touch on now and then. I'm not quite High-Fantasy, I think I'm more Middle/Traditional fantasy. I try to keep a medieval kind of feel to my writing, I guess. Fantasy is very freeing because you can build your own world with it's own laws, and not have to worry about facts VS fiction. I am most comfortable in Fantasy and I have the most fun with it. I love the idea of magic, mythical creatures and far-off places, so fantasy is obviously the nitch for me. In fact almost every story I have takes place with some sort of Fantastical background. I just recently started a detective series, which is why I added Mystery into the mix. I am very new at the whole "Mystery" thing. Slight historical fiction... Yeah. I have yet to write anything set in the past, though I do have several ideas. I even have an idea for a Musical which is set in the Great Depression, and I have some songs for it. I guess this means I also dabble in script-writing and lyrics? I didn't know if I should put this as a genre since I only have one or two Musicals in the back of my mind that I am sort of working on. 8-/
There you have it! I am really, really excited about this camp!!!! I can't wait to start breaking out the Plot Bunnies and all that good foo-fora.
Peace Out Y'all!
