Magical Realism / Slipstream. Always weird, always a little dark. "Dystopias with a sense of humor" has been used to describe it.
I write in multiple genres and have a lot of goals. I'm using this as a way to push forward on several projects: 1 Novel draft. 3 Short Stories. 2 Play drafts. 1 Feature screenplay. 1 Podcast Episode. 2 Short Film Drafts. And a couple outlines for a novella and musical. This roughly comes out to the following PER DAY Goal: 1 Novel Chapter, 350 words of a short story, 3 Pages of a Stage play, 3 Pages of a Screen or Audio Play. Instead of hopping from project to project, I may choose to do more pages of one thing and less of another on a day.
I'd like to raise $500
