I am way burnt out on ancient Egypt. I have two books set in Egypt outlined and one partially written, and I need a break from that setting.
I am researching and plotting a book that falls somewhere between literary fiction and fantasy. Literary fantasy? Maybe. It's weird, I can tell you that. And it involves birds. Lots and lots of birds.
I really need to scour my brain by writing something heavily literary for a while. I feel like I've been reining in my creativity by sticking too close to what's commercial and therefore safe. I want to go all out, get weird, and get very uglypretty. It's going to be a fun ride.
First, though, a synopsis. Gotta write a synopsis.
