Moving swiftly on . . . trying to understand the lit-fic gig. . .
I mentioned a short that I wrote. Girl meets boy on train, they head off the the toilets . . . and, hey, how's your father.
Anyway, I re-read last night. (There's plenty of room for improvement but that's not the point). How do we get this little ditty into a genre? It's can't be romance as it's clearly stated that love is not the issue. Some see it as a 'rape fantasy', putting it into the erotica genre; but this cannot be the case as they were both consenting adults, besides, the sexual content is too small.
So shall it remain a nondescript ditty until it is formerly recognised at 'literary fiction'? Can a qualify as literary fiction myself? How would I do that? Analysis of formula components.
Character description - none.
Scene description - none.
Dialogue - none.
Character development - none.
Retrospection - none.
So, assuming all of the above is intentional we have 2000 words of two people looking at each other on at train and then deciding to go for a bit of leg-over. Surely this must be lit-fic!
