I’m about 12,000 words into my newest work, something that I *thought* was steampunk but now seems to be a gaslight fantasy.
Definition for gaslight fantasy: Not so technical stuff.
Definitiion for steampunk: VERY technical stuff.
I always find it interesting when a story looks at me and says, "No, you’re not that tech-savvy to do this!" and chugs along in its own path.
Does anyone else have different definitions?
Does it matter?
