Wet Panty Serials Newsletter

I’ve mentioned that after the New Year, this site is going to be revamped into a real author site.

At first, it was going to be a revamp.

Then I changed my mind and was just going to revamp this site, but design a whole new website specifically for my writing.

Then I changed my mind again and decided to create simple WordPress sites for the different series I plan to write.

Then I changed my mind AGAIN–LOL–and decided to go back to the revamp idea and have a separate area on my site for my writing. Just so you know, that may change if my web designer can’t do what I want.

ANYHOO, with the new revamp comes new things. And one of those things is the WET PANTY SERIALS NEWSLETTER.

This is an “announcement-only” newsletter.

Meaning, you will only receive this newsletter when I’m starting a new serial, something major happens, or news is particularly timely.

Once the site has been revamped, I’m going to start writing. If you want to be kept in the loop, please sign up for the newsletter in the left sidebar.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Evolet

Can We Guess Your Favorite Sex Position?

You got: Spooning

You’re all about feeling a connection. Spooning is not just great for cuddling, it can work in “other” situations. The bigger question is: Who’s the big spoon and who’s the little one? [The picture below…I can’t even…LMAO]

Writing Tip Tuesday #30 – Jami Gold & Andrea Wenger

writing_tips

I’ve been slacking a bit on the writing tips because I’ve been reading a lot of the same things lately. A lot of rehashed content or stuff I’ve already posted about. And I’ve been working on other Internet-y things. But after finally getting around to reading some of the posts I’d saved in my Inbox, Jami Gold’s answer to the question Does Our Personality Affect Our Writing Process? intrigued me enough to finally post this month.

Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs personality test? I remember doing so at the last long-term job I had. The 7 people in our department took it and the third party consultant who administered it came in and explained everything. It was truly enlightening and it made sense why my manager and I got along so well. We were very similar.

According to Jami, this test can provide a better understanding of how our personality traits might help us develop a writing process that works for us. One suggestion of Jami’s that I may take into consideration at some point, if I feel the need to delve deeper into my characters, is to take this test from a character’s POV to create a story arc.

I got curious.

I don’t remember what my results were when I took it at my job, so I took the test again.

I’m a combo of ISTJ/ISFJ.

The initials ISTJ stand for the following:

I: Introversion preferred to extraversion
ISTJs get their energy from the internal world of thoughts and ideas. They enjoy interacting with small groups of people but find large groups draining. They generally reflect before acting.

S: Sensation preferred to intuition
ISTJs are concrete thinkers, placing more trust in experience than in flashes of insight. They’re more interested in sensory data than in the patterns perceived by the unconscious mind. ISTJs tend to be intellectually content—they want to enjoy the world.

T: Thinking preferred to feeling
ISTJs prefer to use their thinking function when making decisions. They place more emphasis on the rule of logic than on the effect that actions have on people. They tend to be skeptical in evaluating ideas, whether their own or someone else’s.

J: Judgment preferred to perception
ISTJs are drawn to closure. They feel satisfied after finishing a project or reaching a decision. They think in terms of likelihoods rather than possibilities.

The initials ISFJ stand for the following:

I: Introversion preferred to extraversion
ISFJs get their energy from the internal world of thoughts and ideas. They enjoy interacting with small groups of people but find large groups draining. They generally reflect before acting.

S: Sensation preferred to intuition
ISFJs are concrete thinkers, placing more trust in experience than in flashes of insight. They’re more interested in sensory data than in the patterns perceived by the unconscious mind. ISFJs tend to be intellectually content—they want to enjoy the world.

F: Feeling preferred to thinking
ISFJs prefer to use their rational feeling function when making decisions. They place more emphasis on the effect that actions have on people than they do on adhering to the impersonal rule of logic. They tend to give other people the benefit of the doubt.

J: Judgment preferred to perception
ISFJs are drawn to closure. They feel satisfied after finishing a project or reaching a decision. They think in terms of likelihoods rather than possibilities.

If you’ve taken this test, then you know that there’s a long and detailed overview for each one. I’m not going to bore my few readers with the results, just suffice it to say that I was saying “TRUE DAT” a lot. LOL

Several years ago, Andrea Wenger did a series of posts about the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types and their writing strengths and weaknesses. According to Andrea, ISTJ’s might approach a writing project in the following ways:

  • View writing as a means of disseminating information.
  • When starting a project, want clear instructions or a model to work from.
  • Generally work hard and meet deadlines.
  • Have a large mental database of facts to draw on.

The pitfalls:

  • May produce a report, article, or paper that reads like a dry listing of facts.
  • May fail to develop a unifying theme.
  • May be too rigid, resisting the idea of adapting their work to an audience.

So, looking at the overview of this particular side of my personality, I can definitely say that this is/was true. This was/is the academic/business side of my writing personality.

Per Andrea, ISFJ’s might approach a writing project in the following ways:

  • View writing as a form of personal expression.
  • Are self-motivated and self-directed.
  • Prefer to write alone in a consistent environment free of interruptions.
  • Enjoy reading and writing about history or biography. When writing fiction, they can often be quite funny in conveying their observations about the foibles of human nature.
  • Want to be of service to others, and naturally write in a manner that reflects this value.

Hoo-boy! This was like reading my zodiac sign. This is definitely my creative writing personality. The third bullet point is SO TRUE I feel like that should be in flashing neon lights. LOL However, I don’t agree with bullet point #4. I don’t like reading and writing biographies or about history. History and I didn’t get along in school. At all.

The pitfalls:

  • May dislike writing about abstract concepts.
  • May state the obvious or otherwise display a lack of confidence.
  • May struggle with impersonal analysis.

Yes to the first two (especially #2), but feel the whole “impersonal analysis” thing sounds like an ISTJ trait. When I’m writing from a creative standpoint, impersonal analysis doesn’t fit in. One of the questions that Jami asks at the end of her post is “Do you have traits you try to fight or overcome?” Initially, I would’ve said “no”. But I went back and looked at the meaning of ISTJ and ISFJ, as well as the writing approaches and pitfalls, and I would have to change my answer to “yes.”

The lack of confidence.

Writing YA was easier. I was immersed in that world because I was watching a lot of teenybopper-type shows and teenybopper-type movies. When my characters spoke to me it was from the POV of a teenager. It was easier for me to get into that mindset and live in that world.

Until I started dreaming about a character that wasn’t a part of that world.

I’ve been reading adult romance for a long time and when I knew that–at the time–I wanted to be a full-time writer, I had the vague notion that I wanted to try writing adult romance. With the idea that it would happen after I finished YA. Like it was a given that, at some point, I was going to just stop writing YA and jump into a totally different genre. Bwaha.

Because that’s how my mind works.

Turns out, that’s exactly what I’m doing.

I’ve been procrastinating for so long, that I practically talked myself out of writing in a new genre.

All due to lack of confidence.

My two biggest fears, when it comes to writing adult romance, are:

1) My characters not sounding and acting “adult” enough

2) Writing realistic love scenes

Never mind that I’ve been reading adult romance since my FRESHMAN YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL (I’m in my mid-40’s now). Never mind that I have a seriously active imagination and a vivid dreaming (sometimes even daydreaming) life. When I was writing YA, well, it’s YA. It’s called Young Adult for a reason. I was writing for the 13-18 crowd. And the “love scenes” were pretty sweet. Not sweet as in cool, but sweet as in the most my characters did was French kiss. LOL

So, yeah, adult romance is a whole different ball of earwax.

And it doesn’t help when I’m reading the likes of Lori Foster, Melissa Foster, Jaci Burton, etc. Consistently. Because I love their writing. And I’m giving myself a mental smackdown of “I’m never going to be a USA Today bestselling author,” “I’m never going to be as good as they are,” “I’ll never get an agent,” “I’ll never be able to write a book a year,” I’ll never be able to work on multiple projects.” I could go on, but the bruises are starting to show. LOL

I just have to remember that they’ve been doing this for many, many years.

I have to remember that they’re full-time writers and making a living from writing full time. That’s no longer a goal of mine even though it was when I first caught the Writing Bug.

I have to remember that their writing processes will never work for me. “Never say never” really does apply here because I’m Evolet and they’re Lori, Melissa and Jaci. What works for them will not work for me.

I have to remember that they’re putting out paperbacks, hardbacks and eBooks. I’m doing none of that. Just serial fiction, posted on a website. That’s my version of independent publishing.

So, that lack of confidence?

I’m working on it.

Slowly, but surely.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Evolet
