My novel is historical with a bit of magical realism thrown in (or at least, that's how I think of it). I have lots of other ideas swirling around from other genres. I like poetry but can't write it. I'm not skilled enough with compression to write a great short story. For now, I'm mucking around in the world of my novel for fun and to teach myself how to write.
I've always liked to write - journaling, stories, etc., and I've done it off and on since adolescence (in secrecy, of course). I've only made a serious attempt at a novel in the last four or five years (also, in secrecy).
I've been working on a novel off and on for three years, and I'm close to giving up...or starting from scratch. I haven't committed to either yet. I'm glad to find a writers' group at my local library - finally a meetup in my neck of the woods!
