Follow Friday #98


Question this week from Parajunkee and Allison Can Read.

How does this work? You follow a blog, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What are the funniest books you’ve ever read?

SEX AND THE SINGLE WITCH by Annette Blair – I listed this one first because there was a scene that had me LOL. For like five minutes. Maybe more because I kept rereading it. And laughing some more. It was so great, I contacted the author and sent her a link to the review.

BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD Series by J.R. Ward – There’s always an element of laughter in this series. It’s the way the brothers act with one another.

DRAGON KIN series by G. A. Aiken – Like the above series, there are elements of humor in this series (at least, the few titles that I’ve read. I plan to read more).

PLAY by Kylie Scott – The heroine is the drummer in a band called Stage Dive and he’s hilarious. I’d read about this author, forgot about her, then was reminded of her again when my reading buddy, Rhonda, picked up this book and told me she was laughing so much she nearly pissed her pants. I like reading books like that. I wasn’t nearly pissing my pants, but she was right about laughing alot.

So, what are the funniest books you’ve read? This inquiring mind wants to know.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Writing Tip Tuesday #28: Jordan Rosenfeld & Martha Alderson


In all my pantsing-ness, I could care less about structure, plot points, pinch points, the midpoint and what makes up a scene.

I just want to see where the writing takes me and while I’m doing that, I’m praying to the Writing Goddesses that I don’t hit a wall. But really, it’s nice to know where one should stand when it comes to writing scenes and Jordan Rosenfeld and Martha Alderson provide a break down on the Fundamentals of Writing a Scene.

What comprises a scene?

If you’ve never thought much about the shape of a scene, consider it a self-contained mini-story with a rising energy that builds to an epiphany, a discovery, an admission, an understanding, or an experience. The reader should feel as though every scene has purpose, deepens character, drives the story forward, and ends in such a way that he just has to know what happens next.

What’s the best way to start and end a scene?

You need not start scenes with an explanation or exposition but simply with an entrance into the action. Then, by following a character’s goals and desires, you walk your reader through a setting—preferably in a way that shows the protagonist interacting with it, not just observing it—employing the character’s sensory perceptions, introducing his conflict and relationship with inner and outer antagonists and allies, and building the character to a high or low point. Never leave the reader too satisfied at the end of a scene; she must want to keep reading to find out what happens next.

What should a scene accomplish?

Each scene creates consequences that must be dealt with or built upon in the next scene.

A scene is defined by the presence of more real-time momentum than interior monologue (contemplation) or expository explanation.

Real-time momentum is a combination of action, dialogue, and character interaction with his surroundings and other characters. Your scenes can end on a high note (a small victory for your character) or a low note (a moment of cliff-hanging suspense or uncertainty). It doesn’t matter which way it goes so long as each scene concludes by setting up future conflicts for the character(s) and creating in readers a yearning to know what happens next.

What qualifies as a scene?

If you’re wondering whether a passage or section you’ve written qualifies as a scene, consider what scenes are not.

  • Scenes are not an opportunity to take your character on a long, leisurely detour into situations with characters that have nothing to do with the protagonist’s dramatic action goals (that’s a character profile or vignette).
  • Scenes are not a place to explain something or to lecture to your reader (that’s a pace killer).
  • Scenes are not long histories of people and places (that’s dull backstory).


Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Wet Panty Wednesday #44

This month’s theme: Indian Men

One of the new shows I’m currently watching is QUANTICO and the main heroine, the one accused of being a terrorist, is Indian. Her name is Priyanka Chopra and she is quite pretty. I may have to use her as a character in one of my books.

But it got me to thinking that I’ve seen gorgeous Indian women, but are there any gorgeous Indian men?

And then I remembered these shows I used to watch–HEROES, COVERT AFFAIRS, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST– that starred one particularly gorgeous Indian guy.

Hel-lo Sendhil Ramamurthy.

And so, this month’s theme was born.

Writing Tip Tuesday #27: Anne R. Allen


I figured this post was kind of timely since I’m going to do my best to dive back into the TNG world and revise/finish Book 1. Even though Anne R. Allen tells us that the Do’s and Don’ts for Introducing Your Protagonist is only for final drafts, I think these are good tips for when you’re starting a story as well.

1. DON’T start with a Robinson Crusoe opening. That’s when your character is alone and musing. So don’t snoozify the reader with a character:

– driving alone in a car

–  sitting on an airplane

–  waking up and getting ready for the day

–  out on her morning jog

–  looking in the mirror

2. DO open with the protagonist in a scene with other characters—showing how he interacts with the world. Two or three is ideal: not too many or the reader will be overwhelmed.

3. DON’T give a lot of physical description, especially of the police report variety. Give a general impression in a few broad strokes and the reader’s imagination fills in the blanks. [Good point. I tend to overdue and want to describe from head to toe. LOL]

4. DO give us a few strong physical markers that indicate personality. Unusual characteristics like curvy hips or striking hair or an unusual way of dressing will tell us something about who a character is and make her memorable. We don’t need to know the hair/eye thing unless the characteristic is important to the story

5. DON’T present your MC as a flawless Mary Sue. A Mary Sue is the author’s idealized fantasy self—an ordinary person who always saves the day and is inexplicably the object of everyone’s affection. A Mary Sue will make your whole story phony, because a too-perfect character isn’t believable (and is seriously annoying.)

6. DO give your MC strong emotions we can identify with in the opening scene. We don’t have to identify with the situation, but with the emotion.

7. DON’T start with a POV character about to be killed or otherwise eliminated from the storyline. (Ditto DREAMS, or putting the MC in a play or video game.) If you get us intrigued and then say “never mind”, the reader will feel her time and sympathy have been wasted.

8. DO introduce the MC as close to page one as possible. Don’t waste time on weather reports or long descriptions of setting. Remember that modern readers want to jump into the story and get emotionally involved.

9. DON’T start with a prologue. But here are some reasons why prologues aren’t such a great idea:

~ People skip them – The reader has to start the story twice. Just as she’s getting into the story, she’s hurled to another time or place, often with a  whole new set of characters. This is annoying.

~ Agents hate them. Try removing the prologue. Read chapter one. Does it make sense? Could you dribble in that backstory from the prologue into the story later—while the actual plot is going on?

A prologue is like a first draft—usually it’s for the writer, not the reader. It isn’t the overture: it’s the tuning-up. Like a character sketch, a prologue usually belongs in your book journal—not the finished project.

10. DO put the MC in a place and time right away.  If the MC is thinking or talking to someone—where is she?

11. DON’T start with dialogue. Readers want to know who’s speaking before they’ll pay much attention to what they say.

12. DO dribble in your MC’s backstory in thoughts, conversations and mini-flashbacks—AFTER you’ve got us hooked by your MC and her story.

13. DON’T plunge into action before introducing the characters. The introductions can be minimal, but they have to make us feel connected enough to these people to care.

14. DO give your MC a goal. All characters need goals in each scene. But the protagonist needs a compelling, over-arching goal for the whole book. She can’t be easily satisfied. She must need something very badly. A novel needs to be about one big thing, and the character has to have one big goal.

Wet Panty Society – November: Josh Hartnett


‘Tis the month for giving thanks…your health, the warmth of family and friends…and gorgeous men.

This month, please welcome our favorite Victorian era hunter of the supernatural…Josh Hartnett.


Name: Joshua Daniel Hartnett

Birthdate: 21 July 1978, San Francisco, CA

Height: 6’3

Where You May Have Seen Him: HALLOWEEN H20: 20 YEARS LATER (1998), THE FACULTY (1998), THE VIRGIN SUICIDES (1999), PEARL HARBOR (2001), BLACK HAWK DOWN (2001), 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS (2002), SIN CITY (2005), LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN (2006), 30 DAYS OF NIGHT (2007)

Where You Can Currently See Him: as a Victorian hunter of all things supernatural in Showtime’s PENNY DREADFUL (2014-2016)

To be honest, I can’t remember when Josh first showed up on my radar. Possibly during Pearl Harbor. He slipped off my radar for a little bit, even though I’ve seen 6 of the above listed movies.

Until Penny Dreadful.

And I was like “Josh! Dude! Welcome back!”

We no longer have Showtime, but when we did, I watched the first season of Penny Dreadful because of Josh.

Particularly, to hear Josh’s voice.

That mofo has got the deepest, sexiest voice I’ve ever heard since Vin Diesel.

He can read the damn phone book and some panty changing may occur on my part.

The thing about Josh is his sexiness sneaks up on you. He’s got that moody-broody, sweetly romantic, boy next door, intellectual thing goin’ on. He doesn’t smile a lot, but when he does, it’s like BAM! A dimple pops out and you’re like “What. The hell?! You need to do that more often.”

Did I mention the deep, sexy voice?

I think it’s a prereq for tall, gorgeous, moody-broody, sneak-up-on-you-sexy guys to have a deep voice.

Welcome to the Society, Josh.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Writing Tip Tuesday #26: Shanan Haislip


All writers should know that the first draft is not the end-all, be-all.

If they don’t, then they deserve to be rejected.

I think of first drafts like the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) Challenge. This yearly challenge encourages writers to pull a 50,000 word novel out of their ass in 30 days.

No editing.

No rewriting.

And basically no social life, no eating (unless it’s coffee or chocolate), no house cleaning, and no showering.

Just brain hurl.

And  at the end, utter shite.


Shanan Haislip’s post on How to Write a First Draft that Rocks! (using the 4 D’s) introduces us to four elements that can make our first drafts a little less stinky.

Dilemma – The plot of your first draft must be defined by its biggest, most distinctive elements – its conflicts. Take an hour or two and sketch a quick list of the major conflicts in your story, and include:
~ The inciting incident (that gets your characters moving in the beginning)
~ Act I’s conflict that sets up your protagnist’s quest, change arc, undoing or rebirth
~ Act II conflict(s) in which your characters strive for what they want, and fail or are rebuffed
~ Act III’s rising climax and final showdown (often a sequence of two or three intertwined conflicts)

Duos – The brief appearance of at least two, but ideally even more, of your main characters. This can be as simple as your pro- and antagonist, but for the most successful first draft, at least two of your most significant supporting characters, as well.

Dynamics – The rising and falling of action are a critical aspect of plot, most particularly in the middle of your novel where you maneuver your characters from Point A to Point Z. The cure for mushy middles is a steady authorial hand that not only moves the plot inexorably forward, but steadily builds tension by raising the stakes again and again.

Doom – Good old impending doom is one of those magic little devices that helps hook your readers, and keep the pages turning. Through your first draft, deliberately drop in those little hints, those atmospheric asides, that let the reader know that your story is careering closer and closer to the edge of that cliff.

So, how do you create a first draft? This inquiring mind wants to know.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Wet Panty Society – A Little Trivia About Jonathan Rhys-Meyers

~ Sang some of the songs that appear in VELVET GOLDMINE (1998)

~ Beat out at least 200 actors for the role of Elvis Presley.

~ Resides in London, England and Los Angeles, California when not filming. Owns an apartment in Morocco and Dublin, Ireland.

~ Arrested at the Dublin airport November 18, 2007 on charges of public drunkenness and breach of the peace.

~ Favorite actors are Joaquin Phoenix and Cillian Murphy.

~ The first acting work he did was a commercial at age 15 for which he was paid 500 pounds.

~ Thought of joining the priesthood when he was a kid.

~ Idolizes Johnny Depp.

And a quote:

“There will be ups and downs, but it’s important to remember you’re on your own beautiful journey and once you’re on it you have to see it through to its conclusion and try to never be afraid to do anything because what is the worse that can happen?”

And now it’s time…to say goodbye…to my favorite King.

Get your final drool on, ladies (and gents, if you swing that way. There’s no diss-crimination ovah herre).

Hope you enjoyed the month of October and the eye candy that was Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. Jon is quite the versatile actor and has had many different looks. Do you like him with short hair or long hair? Regular or androgynous? Smiling or smoldering?
