Last night Caitie and I were talking about blogging and I realized it has been quite a while since I've written on here! I'm going to try to write in this space a bit more than I have been recently.
I finished writing my updated Midsummer Night's Dream. I then went back and rewrote the whole thing because it wasn't nearly long enough. I've gotten it from a meager 28K to just under 40K, partly by adding a substantial framework around the story that plays perfectly throughout. It was a lot of work, but I think it paid off to be sure. The book is a YA novel, and I think it will appeal to any who enjoy the Shakespeare work - as well as those who don't know it at all. I sent the book on to my agent, hoping she might have some more ideas for expansion.
To get things kicked off with the new blog, I have a question for you. We were having a discussion yesterday about Star Wars. I know, typical geekery. Our discussion was about whether or not Star Wars is a fantasy or science fiction. Caitie took one position, I took another. We're willing to hear arguments, though we each think that we are right. Which do you think Star Wars is, and what is your definition of each genre?
