Welp. I was wrong. As usual.
I'm writing! And it's contemporary fantasy! Yay! It's weird and a little gross and strangely funny. I have no clue where it's going, and that is rather exciting after all these edits and outlines I've been doing.
It's funny how trends work, how we get so excited about something only to be bored to tears with it the next year. But it just goes to show—I don't think genres ever really die. They just go in cycles, much like my writing interests do. That's why trend-chasing isn't necessary. It'll come back around eventually. Probably sooner than you think.
And so here I am writing about witches and old magic houses and dark somethings.
