Doug,
 
I don't consider it fantasy because it really takes mythical characters and puts them in ordinary life - as well as the same storyline running with ordinary folks.

Willie, from reading your logline it sounds like it has a fantastical element but the subject matter seems to be anything but fantasy? Of course who could really tell without reading it.

What do you think about this deal with "Writer's Bootcamp" giving feedback after all is done.  Could be great or it could be like those guys who stand on the corner in the French Quarter trying to sell you a time share.  Just wondering - you know anything about them?
 
As all can see - I did not question Writer's Bootcamp, so please stop quoting me as if I did... thanks.

Glenn,
 
That is correct - I use mythical and/or fantasy characters, but the happenings are normal and ordinary, quite human, actually.

Oh, so you're doing something like what the Coen Brothers did with the cyclops from The Odyssey when they translated him to a one-eyed Bible salesman in O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Although that movie can reasonably be typed as part of the magical realist genre, that particular character wasn't all that fantastical.  (I think that came to mind because John Goodman played him.)
