Storytelling in Four Tweets, Featuring Kristine Scalzi

Premise, conflict, resolution, denouement — it’s all here, man!

I think this counts as one of the books for my deal. I’ll have to check.

  1. I just saw a show on UK tv where an American guy woke up from the anesthetic after a colonoscopy and thought the woman standing over him was the most beautiful he’d ever seen. He was blown away when she told him she was his wife.

    Fiction, meet truth. Like, way strange.

  2. does the contract specify the length of the books? Most of them do specify a certain number of words……although, hey, if you can get away with it, great! Keep writing!

  3. fuzznose: From what I’ve read about these things, if the contract specifies x and such number of novels, then the industry generally defines a novel as a minimum of 40,000 words. Anything less is classified as a novella, novelette, or short story. This I believe applies to adult novels; I don’t know about YA.

  4. Somehow I have never noticed Krissy’s ear piercings. Fabulous and I like Amal’s thinking!

    (Full disclosure: I can’t be bothered to wear earrings often enough to keep my, relatively, standard pair of holes reliably open.)

  5. Money jokes already getting old, but I cannot resist …..

    Don’t you have a guy to handle pesky bills now? No need to dirty your hands with such egalitarian trappings as handling money.

  6. Heck, I’m a straight girl and I’D hit on Krissy. That 4th picture is the best.

  7. Maybe Tor will accept it as a part of a book if you adopt the “Wisdom from My Internet” model of good bookifying.

  8. with a little photoshoppy alien thing behind those windows, you are totally covered for book one. (please note: not a legal opinion)

  10. Dangnabbit! My shriveled heart actually, you know, beat or something when I read this. Totally adorable! #StillABetterLoveStoryThanTwilight

  11. Yeah, but … this just proves you are not a bunny-suit wearing SJW because she would split the check, or paid for it herself. Turns out you ARE a real he-man MilSF protagonist… You need a better character name, though: Duke Lancer, or something similar…
