Writing Excuses 6.28: Interstitial Art

Writing Excuses 6.28: Interstitial Art

From http://www.writingexcuses.com/2011/12/11/writing-excuses-6-28-interstitial-art/

Key Points: Interstitial art falls in the interstices between recognized genres. Beware beta readers and others pushing you towards the genre of their choice. Write what is important to you. Dialogue with your readers can help separate "this isn't what I expected" from "I don't understand." Don't put yourself in a box unless you want to. Consider a local salon.

[Mary] I thought you were going to do that. Oh! So, for your writing prompt today, try to write something that doesn't fit neatly into the boxes. Maybe pick a genre and look at it and go, "Okay. Well, these are the tropes," and defy them.
[Dan] All right. Well, excellent. This has been Writing Excuses. You are out of excuses. Now go write.
