Holy moly. Those HAL 9000 screensavers. How have I never seen those before? How have I not had that on every computer I’ve ever used?

Facing Facts About Fiction

Saturday was a great day at Denver Comic Con. Learned so many useful things from the guest authors in and out of their panels.

But I also had to face some hard truths about my own genre choices:

  • Apparently what I wore today was “Steampunk,” though I thought it was just “clothing.” *

  • Apparently the novel I’m querying is “Urban Fantasy,” though I  thought it was just “mystery.” **

The fact that these now seem to me like obvious truths does not make them feel any less weird. But I love getting new perspectives on things I thought I understood.

—————

  • *It must be due to the watch and chain on my leather vest.
  • **It must be due to the psychics who work for my private detective.
