How do you get something for nothing?

Tipping Point

How do you get something for nothing?

As a person who understands physics, I can tell you that you don’t!

To obtain energy; fuel of some sort must be spent.

Targeting the moon with a laser for Nasa is an easy feat.  When you want to measure the distance from the earth to the moon you bounce a laser off a mirror placed on the moon, calculate the amount of time it takes to return and Viola!  You know the distance from the earth to the moon.

When Nasa could not hit the target, a red flag went off around the world.

Samantha, a genius in her own right, ask the question, “how do you get something for nothing?”

With tens of thousands of windmills extracting energy from the wind, she asked the question, could these be slowing down the earth causing the weather patterns to shift?”

Believe it or not, this is a romance!

Yes, it is an enjoyable Sci-Fi adventure of the likes you might see on the SCI-FI channel right after Sharknado, but it is that kind of story.  Many of my readers have mentioned that the SCI-FI channel should make a movie out of it.

If it ever happens maybe I will get to write the script!

I have been thinking about writing a screenplay to see if it improves my writing, has any of you done that?   With a screenplay, you have to think of every detail, which I think might improve one’s writing.

Someone told me that there is software designed for that purpose.

Anyway, Tipping Point is a fun lunchtime read on Kindle Unlimited, or you can support yours truly by actually spending a couple of bucks.  Think about it, for half a cup of coffee you can be entertained.

Tipping Point is a young adult kind of book with a tiny bit of implied naughtiness.  A tame version of my usual reads.

Saga of the Starduster

Skinny Dipping on an alien world was probably not their best idea.

Skinny Dipping on an alien world was probably not their best idea.  A planet supposedly devoid of sentient life left the crew wondering if their definition of sentient should be revisited.

Hijacked from the International Space Station, Don finds himself the “guest” of a race of beings who patrol the galaxies looking to maintain some modicum of law and order.  Shot at as they came nearby the Earth’s moon, the captain wants to know who shot at him, and why?

Discovering the Space station, he decides to bring it inside one of their cargo bays.

Don, a willing participant, goes on board.  During the initial medical examination, their doctor learns of cancer inside Don’s lung.  Creating a virus to attack the cancerous tumor; things go badly as she had never treated humans.

Uploading his conscious to one of their computers, their team works feverishly to save his failing body. Don learns all about them in their virtual reality computer.  Their doctor attaches her mind to his via this machine, to learn that Don had a beautiful mind and spirit.

Emotions were abandoned in their culture, but she was allowed to experience them.  For the first time in her long life, falling in love and experience what love was, the story will have you laughing, loving and crying as the two races meld; finding common ground.

Not to worry, there are no sad endings, but this ending is a surprise that you might not see coming!

Hole In time

Just when you think you have it figured out, physics changes.

Sitting next to folks at lunch or the local Starbucks I noticed that many of you read.

Carving out a slice of time from your hectic day to take a small mental vacation, I came up with this series for you Sci-Fi buffs

Episode 1 through 9 are on Amazon Kindle Unlimited meaning you can probably read them for free.

The Pilot episode is on your standard Amazon, Apple, Barns and Nobles and so on.  Since it is the pilot and pulls the story together, for marketing sake, it needed to be widely distributed.

The series took about six months or so to create, the feedback has been awesome and the readership rather robust.   If you are one of them, Thanks so much!

Ben and his crew of the Brooking haul cargo from one stop to another while traversing the galaxy. After picking up some rare mineral on Treglia, a planet in the outer reaches of the universe, things take unpredictable twist and turns.

We meet earth’s early ancestors as well as ancient Martians as we float through each episode.

Ben finds himself the last human male alive on a ship full of women.  Does the race die off or does Ben and his crew think outside the box?

These are all lunchtime reads so let me know what you think!

The artwork was created on an IPad Pro, with different art software currently available on Itunes.
The story is a product of an overactive imagination always asking “what if” and Red Bull!

While there, check out my other novels.  Currently, I am working on a novel with Dragons, Witches, Shamans, Pirates, and Sirens  …

Is Pornography a bad thing?

When you cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality, you are in trouble. 

I have become confused over the years as many things are now lumped together or synonymous with the word “porn.”

  • Food Porn
  • Library Porn
  • And of course erotic porn.

If we can agree that pornography can be interpreted as an extreme of something, then we can continue on to the main topic.

In the sense that too much of anything is bad, we can quickly come to a consensus that porn in the sense of “too much,” is probably not good.

What I want to address however are the different kinds of erotic pornography.

Why do people look at or partake in porn in the first place?

Fantasy vs. reality.

In our daily lives, we live in our world of work, school or home life.  During our waking hours, we do what we must do to stay on task or to be on purpose for who or what we are.  Life can get pretty mundane.  Several days a week we get up and do our thing.  When we come home, we have another “thing” to do which is usually boring or at least mundane.  Many of us might read for an escape, or most will sit in front of the TV and live their lives vicariously through football or dancing with the stars or some reality tv show, where we become the star of the show.

How many lazy boy quarterbacks have you seen, or perhaps you are one.  We scream at the TV when a bad call is made, and we just don’t care that they cannot hear us.  Monday morning we visit with our cohorts and talk smack about the lousy calls and then reluctantly engage in our task of shuffling papers, or writing code or whatever it is that you do.  That is a reality.

Before the Internet, Pornography was relatively mild, somewhat limited to truck stops, bookstores or adult bookstores, and of course, the ever popular Playboy which I would argue was really not porn.  Hustler was porn and the first to show parts of the female anatomy that one could claim had nothing to do with artistic value.

Along came an easy way to exploit people through the internet.

“Yes women are objectified but let’s face it, unless they are forced to do it by some sex trafficker, they do it to themselves.”  The porn industry is huge.  Like drugs, there is a demand for it.  If there is a demand; no matter how illegal it becomes, there will be a source.

I wrote about marketing earlier, and sex sells. Why?  Why does sex sell?

If you go to the beach no matter your gender, look at the people who are attractive in your opinion.  Now try and take care to notice where your eyes go.  If you are a man most probably your eyes will immediately go to the parts of her body that are covered by cloth, and your brain will fill in the blanks.

If you are a woman and you see some man that interests you; if you are honest with yourself, after looking at his face or smile and abs, your eyes will check out the bulge in shorts, or his behind.

I write a lot about nudists in my books because people fascinate me.  If you are wearing a bikini, you will notice the looks from men and might have an urge to say “hey, my eyes are up here.”

The simple facts are that he or you are following your program. 

When a person sees someone that is sexually stimulating to them the reward center of the brain releases chemicals that start the process of procreation.

The whole process could take hours or months to complete but make no mistake, it is a chemically induced process.  When sex is involved, again, chemicals control the process from flirtation to pillow talk.  Orgasm releases feel-good chemistry in the brain as well as chemicals that shut off the desire for more sex in the man until he recharges.  Hence the stupor and sleep following sex.

Those chemicals or the reward of their release is what pushes us for some private time with the internet and some appliance, or at least a little digital exercise of the non-electronic kind if we are single.  I would argue that it is probably healthy and if not taken to an extreme, not a bad thing.

Realizing that we are designed for procreation now let’s go back to the pornography question.

Anyone on the internet of any age can get all the porn that they want.

Let that sink in for a moment.  Your five year old can stumble across it.

Young folks see this type of stuff and have no idea how to process it.  Once in puberty, they have the desire; it is built in.  Now they have many of the questions answered as they can watch all of it that they want.

Desire and mystery removed, now they just need a willing partner.  Will babies be made or diseases spread, probably!

Pornography is not real life.  Not many pizza men will ring you up looking to trade sex for pizza.  If they do it could be a whole new franchise opportunity.

Young folks have no idea about such things and get screwed up ideas about sex and how it works because of what they might see.

Sex for most of us comes with commitment and emotional investment.  Without it, you might as well date a corpse.

Morality is under attack by what we see in the world today, and few voices are saying, hold on there cowboy, that is not the way that it works.  With the family unit in disarray, too many teen parents are being made, and abortion is probably not the answer.

What about you and I, we are adults, is porn a good thing or a bad thing?

If you find yourself dating your Hitachi more than a real person, it is probably a bad thing.

The problem with porn is that it leads people to fantasize about certain things which are just crazy if you think about it.  In Denise and Trisha’s adventure, I write about rich people who pay these girls to perform acts on one another in front of a webcam to fulfill their fantasy’s.  They are Dom’s in every sense of the word, but since it is over the internet and the location and identity of each of them are hidden, they can live out their fantasy remotely.

I discovered the underbelly of the internet from one of my Twitter followers who is on a site called My Free Cams.  Checking out that site, the story wrote itself.  Over a thousand “models” at any given time are working their audience for tips.  They are providing a type of prostitution where no contact is made other than through the mouse or keyboard.

Since the writing of that book, I have learned of several other services that provide the same thing.  This means that there are thousands of young ladies out there making money from their bedroom’s entertaining people for tips.

“I am not judging them.”

If they are consenting adults and make an informed decision to do this, it is their choice.  These girls are also from many different countries.  I would love to crawl around in their heads to see what if anything they get out of it.  Is it titillating in some way?

My issue with this site and some like it is that anyone can log in and see whatever they are doing.  While they tell you if you are under 18 to go away, they are not exactly asking for id.  Are there girls on this or other sites who are being forced to do this?  Possibly. Could the models be under 18?  Good question…

Is porn a bad thing?

Porn is a thing, as my novels are a thing.  If you read Denise and Trisha’s adventure, I paint pictures in your head that could be pornography.  I am assured that my novel is not smutty but in a 50 Shades kind of way, it is certainly titillating.

I got a kick out of a couple that I know.  She was fussing at her husband for looking at too much Cinemax or internet porn while she read smutty books.  Holier than thou much?  It is the same damned thing!

I would argue that books like mine or 50 shades are better as your imagination will probably paint a better picture than some person who day in and day out has sex for a living.  That is why I have always felt the book version was better than the movie.

When you cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality, you are in trouble.  These teachers who are sleeping with students have crossed the line, and one has to wonder what did they put into their heads?

Mental health will be the next big need in this country and probably others as we change the dynamics of who we are.

When I was speaking of nudist earlier, if you have ever tried it, the awkwardness is gone in seconds, and soon the genitalia or what have you is like a knee or elbow.  Most people look better with clothes on, and I think that is why fewer women are nudist.  Women more than men seem to care about what they look like and you get into this whole body shaming argument.  We come in all shapes and sizes, and there is a huge difference between pornography and nudity.  As an artist, I love the human form in all of its shapes and sizes.

I have this vivid memory of a man on a beach wearing a speedo.  Speedos’ in the states are out of style and have been.  The man himself had a scar from his neck, down around his belly button into his speedo and down one leg.  He must have weighed easily 350 pounds.  I smiled when I saw him and thought, “good for you!”

He survived some rather traumatic surgery or had one hell of a birthmark, and he felt sexy in that speedo.  Who am I to judge him for how he is dressed.  That speedo helped him to feel better about himself, and he might very easily be a super nice guy!

I must say that there is a time and a place for all things under heaven.  If that sounds blasphemous, I will caution you to judge not.  He knew you before you were formed and knew everything that you would ever do and created you anyway.  That is my story, and I am sticking to it.

Currently, I am working on a book about witches, warlocks, dragons, and pirates!  Twelve thousand words into it and I am loving it.  Taking a break to write about this subject was important.  One of my readers asked what I thought about pornography.  Now you know!

Marketing, answer to e-mail..Why?

Sell the Sizzle and not the Steak!

With the Website getting much more traffic at www.AuthorTWScott.com.  I sometimes get some interesting comments.  One person asked me why in the world I have Vadazzle.com  as a link.

I laugh when I think about it but, it is an entertaining story.

First and foremost I worked for an advertising agency for years.  I most probably got the idea from watching too much Bewitched, always feeling sorry for Derwood.  Yes, Darren.

Bewitched
Bewitched I loved them dearly! The writers were fantastic!

Darren if you did not know worked for an ad agency.  “What does one do there?” I thought as a young person.

Because of this, I used to watch commercials, listen to them and studied them in magazines.  Why is this one working?  I studied this rather intently. It really boils down to playing to people’s baser desires, and sex is a biggie!

Sex sells period.  While I was always under the impression of selling the sizzle and not the steak, Grace Powers does this nicely.  My hat is off to her.  YouTube and other social media have her pulling the hair out of her most intimate of places, with millions of views.

She teaches others who desire to rip their hair out, exactly how to do it; and what products they need.  She, of course, sells her products to you through Amazon, and I am confident from her direct.

Grace does not sell the pain that one will no doubt experience with this product she sells the appeal of no hair.  She sells the sizzle which is what she does so well.

If you read any of my slightly mischievous novels and there are a few, I use her products or the idea of them, as plot devices.  I too sell the sizzle but I emphasize the pain part as the device.

Imagine if you will that in six hours, you and your lover are going to retire. He or she slowly and methodically will remove all of your hair from there.  And you cannot stop them.  You must be submissive and allow it. Ouch!

That is a different kind of foreplay for sure but, isnt that part of the game?

>Denise and Trisha’s Adventure is a romance between two young ladies who went to college together.  Discovering the online pornographic industry via a webcam, they entertain their clients in different ways.  One of the ways is yes, sugaring or waxing themselves on camera, at the direction of their tippers.

The villain is dressed as an evil German doctor. She tortures the poor defenseless maiden while they try to extract information from her.  Of course, the webcam community go crazy over the act.

Plucking hairs from time to time, I can only imagine how this must feel to rip them out En masse!  Grace must be immune to pain, much like that character in the show Haven, who felt no pain.  Not her, Him!

Haven - Season 4

Since I used the idea of her products as plot devices in a few of my novels, I wanted to give her a free bit of advertising.  That is why it is there, not only on the website; and now here on the blog, but also in the book itself.

Nope, I don’t get a nickel from her.

She has other products that might make their way into my novels as well.  One recently made it into Diamond Joe, under the My Pink Wink logo; which makes things pink again.

She is aware that I am doing this and has expressed an appreciation for my imagination.  I am not standing behind her products and will accept zero liability.  That is all on you.  If you decide that your “wink” needs to be pinker, or your bits need to be hairless, she seems to have what you need. She also sells a line of body jewelry which unlike a tattoo, you can remove when you get tired of it.  (I think)

Guys, she has stuff for you too!  Think that Brazilian looks nice on your lady, you too can be bare down there. Just a thought cowboy.

Millions have viewed her videos online, which is marketing.  I would imagine that a majority of those are men but, after they get the idea, how many of them say “hey sugar, can we try this on you?”

I watched Dr. Ruth Westheimer when I first got cable.  She is a sex therapist and at 89, still going and still talking about sex.  I too am all for keeping the love life alive, so if this is your thing …

Some of the other plot devices come from different manufacturers of toys and such, like Adam and Eve.

Check out my novels, Denise and Trisha’s Adventure is 50 shades fun,  18 and up, please.  No screwed up man is going to beat them with a belt!

Diamond Joe Rev 2

I think it would force me to be a better writer.

Feedback is a wonderful thing. 

When I write my creative juices are often flowing in the wee hours.  Unless my head is on the keyboard and a long line of xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx’s are crossing the screen, I am writing.

When the flow of the story falters or stops, so do I.

Having said that, some of my booboo’s show up and I don’t see them.

Someone pointed out that Marcie became Darcy in one paragraph.

Darcy is one of the main characters in my hole in time series and Marcie a supporting character in Diamond Joe.

Another pointed out that Diamond Joe was a grandfather and then a father… All good calls!

I usually do not try and edit when I am sleepy and those are words that all authors should probably live by.

Revision 2 is on Amazon and will be released as soon as they review it to make sure I haven’t done something nefarious.

Time is part of the story and often we don’t get it all perfect.  The story flows thusly and we must give the reader some sense of how much time is actually going by.  There are so many parts to making a good book, time, weather, the mood should all be there without even thinking about it.

Set the stage as it were.

That is why I am thinking about writing a screenplay.

Not only do you have to come up with the dialogue but every bloody detail must be there.  Whether anything happens with it or not, is superfluous to the reason for the writing of it.

I think it would force me to be a better writer.

Thoughts?

Go check out Diamond Joe or any of my 20 odd other novels out there.  Tell your friends about me, follow me and I will follow back!

If you are writing and chances are that you are if you are reading this blog, how is it going for you?

How do you get something for nothing?

 

Have we gone too far trying to get clean energy from everything?  How do you get something for nothing?

Preparing the blog page for Tipping Point I went back to read the novel once again.

When I talk about the book I have to refresh my memories of the characters.   Would you believe that I found a typo or two….?  It is a shame that there is not a software package to find everything.  I enjoy what I write so reading it again is not a chore.  Analyzing it once again has me rewriting certain sentences, that I find clumsy.

The story is germane in that it deals with plausible scenarios which could affect the world as we know it.

With the basic question of “How do you get something for nothing?” TW wrote a story that begs that very question.

Using the assumption that not everything comes from the SUN we must then ask, where does it come from.  The novel Tipping Point is a romance with a science fiction twist.

The feedback thus far has been that this would be a good movie for the SCIFI channel.  I am not sure if that is a compliment or not?

The characters tell the story. It is a fast read.

Let me know what you think of it!
