Flash me some Parody Love Fiction

Romance Excerpt, Fantasy Excerpt, Wendy May

At times a writer gets these odd little quirks to jot down silly anecdotes. I believe this is one of those days to share a few. Beware for there is an overuse of flowery words and bad puns in this formulaic parody attempt of the various romantic plots that wonderfully exist in this world.

Love in Space

Ferdinand wondered what he would tell the others. He was overwhelmed with joy. Just a week(A week? It seemed like a millennium ago), he had been sure that he would never fall in love, that he would resist the unclean thoughts that nibbled like disease-spreading parasites at the edges of his brain and remain chaste for the sake of peace.

Any passion he felt was directed towards his duty: to lead the people of Rosaland into revolution and thereby make those horrid dreams go away at last. One week, and how that had changed.

He struggled for breath as he whirled to face the love of his life, Princess Tulip, who with her big bucks and political power could have any man she desired. "You're as attractive as peace itself," he murmured softly. "Even this bleeding wound could not keep me from you. A love like ours will never die." He smiled, hoping the blood stains would wash out of his armor.

Love of the Bloodsucker

Tanner wondered what he would tell his landlady. He was hot stuff. Just a week,(A week? It seemed like a century) ago, he had been sure that he would never fall in love, that he would resist the persistent nagging of his mother, who wanted grandchildren, and remain virginal for the Nation. Any passion he felt was directed towards his lifelong task: to address the class struggle he saw tearing his country apart and thereby change the world.

One week, and all that changed.

He embraced the love of his life, Penelope, who had managed to teach herself Latin, Greek, English, modern and ancient history, and geography, despite the abase poverty she was born into. "My life was a lonely wasteland before I met you," he murmured softly. "Even being shot twelve times at close range could not keep me from you. A love like ours makes me long for Utopia to finally be realized." He smiled, trying to decide if this was a good time to mention he was a vampire.

Love at the House

Waiting alone in the Bounce Chamber, remembering its bloody history, with the plaintive braying of the Don's llamas wafting in from outside, Alicia - she who had always seemed so cold - thought once more of Mr. Oliver, the deaf troubadour. He was now, according to three independent witnesses, installing Windows 5000. Then came a barbaric YAWP at the heart of the world, and she rose to face the inevitable. He was here!

"Your love has lifted me higher than I've ever been lifted before, my giddy little goose!" he warbled, flexing his sweaty yet muscular biceps, and as the horror of these last months vanished in a blaze of joy, she mused that now that she'd gotten laid, she could finally concentrate on important things.

Let's talk about Fantasy Adventure

Hello everyone, November is shaping up to be an extremely busy month. I imagine it's pretty hectic for you too? Unfortunately, I have to keep working. Writing each day to meet certain goals, photo-shopping various book covers, or re-working old ones to entice new readers. And that's just the side stuff! Props goes to all the people in the world that can juggle a multitude of tasks each day without going crazy. I'm almost at the point of flipping my desk over. Sometimes life can get pretty hard. Thankfully, I do have a ton to keep my mind off the more negative things. For example this month is November. Some of the holiday romance story ideas I have pitched to my editor were the following:

Zombie Cinderella © 2016 : She loses her foot instead of a shoe.Turkey and the Feast © 2016: A billionaire is cursed into the body of a turkey. He has until Thanksgiving to convince a woman to love him or he becomes dinner. My editor patted me on the head as if I was a child then told me …

Show don't Tell. But what does it mean?

Alike yourself I've often wondered what it was exactly that people meant by 'Show don't tell' when it refers to writing stories. In the writing world it's a commonly used phrase but what does it mean? The basic answer is: reader immersion. One of the best ways to immerse your reader into your writing is by creating vivid imagery that will draw them further into your world of imagination.

When a writer sits down to tell their story you want to immerse your reader in it as much as possible. Ask yourself this: "Does my writing show what's happening?" Below are a few writing examples to help you visualize what is meant by this question.

Example 1:

Telling -  She was angry.

Note: This is unambiguous, but not at all evocative — she may feel angry, but the reader isn’t likely to. Think about what you can do to create a distinct picture in the reader’s mind about how to evoke the emotion of anger.

Showing - The rage took over. All-overwhelming. She reached ba…
