Super Green American Science Fiction

. Thursday, September 27, 2012

Guess what my mailman with the bea-U-tiful legs delivered to your grrl, Jocelyn today...

No, not a book. 2 books! And not just 2 run-of-the-mill, blah blah blah books but a 2-volume boxed set of some the best science fiction ever written.

That's right, my wormy-grrls, Modo's reading 9 novels from the golden age of modern science fiction.

You green yet? Super green?

Yeah, thought so. But all you gotta do is part with a little green yourself to lay your hands on the dream box set that contains the following novels that will change your world:

The Space Merchants
More Than Human
The Long Tomorrow
The Shrinking Man
Double Star
The Stars My Destination

A Case of Conscience

The Big Time

Don't I bring you the best stuff? You know I do. ;)

Love, light, and laughter!

Top 10 Rules to Fall in Love

. Wednesday, September 26, 2012

While doing research for a new book where my heroine has rules about starting a relationship and what she thinks is the secret to falling love to Mr. Right after dating a whole lot of Mr. Wrongs, I came up with these top ten:

  1. Let go of past relationships, don't put too much pressure on future relationships, enjoy the relationship you have now.
  2. Feel the Force, Luke. The power is in you to stay or walk away. Go for what you want.
  3. Learn from your mistakes so you don't date the same jackass over and over and over and over.
  4. Be realistic. Romantic books, movies, songs are art, fantasy, dialogue, lyrics, words, entertainment; not reality. Look for a good heart, not a fast talker.
  5. Yes, you are surrounded by assholes but there are good ones out there. Take a look around girl. And don't judge a bookworm by his cover.
  6. Leave the house. I know it's scary but you gotta put yourself out there to get anywhere.
  7. Go with the flow. Don't feel pressured. This ain't a race. Bang the boy if you want but don't expect a good lay to turn into anything more than a good lay.
  8. If your bff hates him, dump him. Your girl knows you, loves you, wants what's best for you. Listen to her, idiot.
  9. Drama can spice things up at first, but long term, drama-rama gets old real fast. Do you really want to spend your relationship fighting? The answer is a big fat no!
  10. Use your grrl power. We women have a great sixth sense. Use yours. Listen to the voices in your head. They've been with you all the way.
Do you have a dating top ten? Do's and don'ts that you follow in your relationships?

Manic Monday Manic

. Wednesday, September 19, 2012

I know it's not Monday so technically I shouldn't be doing my free write but I need it. My bones are breaking and the pain is taking me to an unsafe place so I'm going to spit out what comes. As always, feel free to answer my piece.

I want to take a pill to kill my will to live
I want to heal my heart and learn how to forgive
I want to open your brain and obtain the defect,
know the why to truth and reality's neglect.

I want to fix things or end things and if
I cannot bend things then break them, stake them
through the eye so I can see the reason why you can't see
me or her or them, and then and then and then...

Character and Voice

. Monday, September 10, 2012

You ever have one of those days where you feel your character and voice down to your soul so that the melodic quality rings your bones. Today was one of those days for me, which got me thinking: How do I make these days happen more frequently--or better yet, every day?

What's an author to do but over analyze the crap out of the situation.

So here's what I discovered about where my head was at today:

Due to a whole lotta crazy the night before, emotions were oozing from my pores. While my character and her voice are different than mine, I know her so well that it was easy for me to transform my feelings to enhance and clarify her voice and actions. I love this character so it made it that much easier to not just mimic her voice but be her voice, embody her.

Now when I sit down to write I am going to add to my prep these three things for enhance character and voice:

  1. Get emotional
  2. Know my character
  3. Love my character
I'll try to remember to update you grrls on how this works out for me. (Stop laughing. I don't always forget!)
