The Organized Creative: planning your writing (creative and business) year – quarter – month – year – and finally day
Writing Erotica (Plus Late Valentine’s Social) with M. Jane Colette
Planning out your writing is an acquired skill. Setting priorities and keeping to a schedule. M Jane Colette takes us through her process of planning that allows her to be a fairly prolific writer. AND, since we had a snow day for our last workshop, M Jane will also be presenting her snowed out presentation on Writing Erotica. Can’t be missing that.
M Jane Colette writes tragedy for people who like to laugh, comedy for the melancholy, and erotica for men and women who like their fantasies real. She believes rules and hearts were made to be broken; ditto the constraints of genres. The result? “A whole new sub-genre of her own… social realist erotica that’s frenetic and complex and often funny and very well observed.”
Also, smoking hot. Which is still the most important thing in erotica, romance… and, life?
A poster child Gemini, she is, most of the time, at least two people. Her left-brain persona sold out long ago. She wears severely-cut suits of black, blue and only that shade of green (“No, not that shade—have you seen the colour of my hair and eyes? Please. Let’s coordinate.”) and spends a lot of time in board rooms, offices, and “war rooms” (what a name!) parsing lies. It’s a living.
(But, oh, what a plethora of source material…) Her right-brain persona longs to be an iconoclast and an artist. When nobody’s looking, she writes poetry.
