SP030: Scandal Vermont is for Lovers, Too

Olivia Linden, Elde'a Harris, Katrina Pavela - Scandal Podcast Panel for Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington

Play

What were your three favorite moments from Vermont is for lovers, too?

The psuedo bonding moment between Mama Pope and Papa Pope.  Then when Olivia smashed her phone.  I’m glad to see her finally letting that stuff out. My man Harrison finally–everybody else on this show has had some type of affection on this show except for Harrison.” – Olivia
Obviously besides the love scene when I kind of slid off of my couch.  Which basically started the minute he said, this is your house.  Actually the two scenes with them that was kind of the bread for that sandwich and I’ll get into the scene with they first got to the house and the scene with the two of them, Eli and Maya…”-Katrina
The mama Pope scene, I really loved the Quinn and Huck scene, the Liv and Fitz scene and the Mellie scene when she was watching herself.” – Elde’a
When Fitz said he built a house for Olivia, the fact that Lisa Kudrow’s character FINALLY was able to be tracked by the CIA and pinned down long enough to get her hair combed, praise Jesus.

I Don’t Believe in Writer’s Block

I don't believe in writer's blockWhen you’re writing a couple different book serials at the same time it can become challenging to create scenarios that move your book forward.  Especially a book like The Sisters and The Soulphisticated Ladies.  I am challenged often not to allow one set of ideas to spill over into the other.

But for a while I had writer’s block.

And it was extremely odd because I don’t believe in writer’s block.

You can write your way out of any situation, right? So I sat down and thought about the scenes I had to write for each and came up with this “WWWWWH” Exercise.

I pulled from something I’ve used before for outlining

It wasn’t rocket science, I learned it in high school but I thought it was interesting that in a fit of writer’s block (a month) I went back to something I didn’t even know I kept in my memory banks.  (It has been a few *cough* years since high school).

It’s the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How exercise.  As I plotted out Book 3 for Soulphisticated Ladies (because that was the one that was kicking up a fuss for the last month) I interviewed my inner characters to see where they wanted to go in this book.  It was a great exercise and a challenge.

  • First, I was mad at them because writing this book shouldn’t have taken this long but I had to put aside my differences for the good of completing the season.
  • I was also upset with myself for allowing it to go this long without me staying on task and on schedule.  I believe I may have been burnt out with so many projects going on over the summer but no excuses.

I coaxed my characters’ stubborn butts out and got to work.  It took a few hours but when I was done, I had a great outline with enough tendrils (the dangling plot lines) left over for Book 4.

Stop Being Lazy & Full of Excuses

Normally my way of powering through writers block is to keep writing but it seemed there was never time to write.  I let every excuse in the world come between me and that Scrivener file.  But now I’m back on my grind.  As easy as it was previously to write fiction and challenging to write non-fiction, now I find it to be the exact opposite. I’m challenged more writing fiction than I used to be and when I sit down to blog, words pour from my fingers as if they were waiting to come out and eager for a fresh post.

Toggling Between Non-Fiction and Fiction : A Dance of a Thousand Groans

Hopefully as time goes on it will be easier to toggle back and forth between writing fiction and blogging and I will dance on that day so you will probably see a random meme here doing the butterfly off beat as I dance to something in my living room that makes my soul smile.

So the writing is going along and the book is coming soon.  Hopefully I can keep my word count up and finish it in two weeks.  I look forward to sharing all of these adventures with you all and you can use the WWWWWH exercise anytime you find yourself blocked or challenged with putting words on the page.

Have you ever had writer’s block?  What did you do to shake out of it?

SP029: Scandal – Everything’s Coming Up Mellie S3, E7

The Drama

Everything’s Coming Up Mellie

This week’s episode of Scandal came with  dose of insanity as Big Jerry raped Mellie, Quinn (or rather Lindsay to my point of thinking) runs away from the scene of a crime she commits, Olitz gives us a moment of angst and so much more.

Quinn is inducted into B6-13; Charlie has Quinn over a wire.  He indulges her in her quest for danger and she gets all caught up in that Wonderland life.  Isn’t it convenient that she fell into his trap so easily?

Abby gave a surprising reaction to the fact that Liv’s father is the boogeyman and it’s all roses for her from there.  Despite her prickly thorns, she gives Liv a much needed hug.  I fell in love with Abby right there.  That’s the way to be a friend, Abby.  Mellie gave a heartfelt and empathetic performance on the Oval Office’s seal.  It was the most moving monologue of the episode.

This is my life, that’s what’s wrong!  This is my life! You didn’t show up for me.  You didn’t show up for that stupid reporter and me and Teddy and that photo op in the Oval. I always have to.  I have to do everything myself.  I am tired of doing everything myself.  I am alone here.  We’re supposed to be partners.  We’re supposed to be in this together.  If you knew the sacrifices I’ve made. The things that I have given up and the pieces of myself that I have given away for you and you treat me this way.  You declare war on me and you shame me and you  make me beg for scraps when I have done nothing but fight for you.  You don’t have to love me. But we are in this hell together and the flames are burning us with equal intensity, baby but the least you can do is be my friend.  Just a little bit.  The least you can do is show up.  Show up for me.  Show up for me Fitz.  Instead of being like some, stranger. “- Mellie

The Guest

Langstan Smith

Langstan Smith is a native of Indianapolis, IN. Langstan moved to Chicago, IL 18 years ago in October of 1995 and is proud to call the Windy City home. He began volunteering his time as a graphic designer with various Chicago club promoters which lead to work with the City of Chicago as well as the State of Illinois among other distinguished clientele. Langstan has worked with several Chicago-based non-profit organizations as a designer, a volunteer and an entrepreneur. He is currently pursuing a degree in Graphic Design at Harrington College of Design in Chicago.

Langstan on why he loves SCANDAL

Since the premiere of Scandal on April 5, 2012, I have been an avid and voracious fan of the series. I was hooked from day one, scene one of Season One’s Episode 1: “Sweet Baby”  it was obvious that this show had its own cadence and pace. You either got on and held on or got “bucked” off before the ride even started.

Just as we were learning who Olivia was and what she did for a living, (best introduction monologue EVER!) Shonda Rhimes took a baseball bat and collectively bitch slapped the entire United States as she revealed the scandal of all scandals. “Sweet Baby? Swee… Sweet Baby?” Why is Olivia on the edge of tears talking with the President? Ummm…Oh Heyall naw! With the first shocking reveal, Shonda said, “SCANDAL, BITCHES!”, dropped the mic and left us all snapping and screaming like we were at a Spoken Word event and Shonda had just rocked the mic that night. Dayum!

But it was actually Season One’s, Episode 6: “The Trail” that sealed the deal for me. Shonda Rhimes had in a single episode explained how it all began and revealed who was trying to bring the president down and why and then BAM! The scissors! Dafuque!? No! Gideon!? WTH!?…in walks Quinn…Sploosh! Coffee and bagels everywheeeeere! (True Gladiators will understand the shorthand)  We now knew most of the relationships and how they began just from that one episode. Little did we know the next episode was the last for the summer and I watched those seven episodes like Shonda had said the first seven hits are free, but after that you gotta pay me every last Thursday night you got. I don’t go anywhere. I’m hooked!

SP028: Scandal – Icarus S3, Ep6

The Icarus Episode

Play

So the panel is back tonight and better than ever! We discussed the season 3, episode 5 of Scandal which was Icarus.  Wings were melting and wax was flying all over this episode and we were here for it!  It was great.  I am loving the fact that they are now serving meat with the potatoes on Scandal and we’re getting more and more back story from all of the characters!  Harrison finally has a reason to show up to work, because I think for 2 years, they’ve been giving him pity money.  He’s going to work now as they give us tidbits of his back story.  I’m excited because personally I looking at a cute doll suit on a man is not my idea of entertainment.

It’s late tonight and I know you haven’t seen any other posts on my blog this week–that’s because mama has been busy (super busy) and I’m working on my latest project.  As with last week’s episode, this episode is brought to you by my upcoming drama novel, Soulphisticated Ladies.

The Best Moment Quotes 

Besides the Rowan and Olivia phone call which I loved because for me, it made me start to think about what happened to Olivia’s mom differently. The scene in the oval office where Olivia comes in and Mellie says welcome home and she gestures towards Fitz. And the Grant-Langston dinner because Mellie was manipulating the s*** out  of Daniel Douglas in order to bring out Sally’s weakness.  And I also liked the Lisa Kudrow scene scene when she goes off on James for all the sexist politics.” -Katrina
The phone call’s across the board and I love the scene with James when Lisa Kudrow goes off, and there’s a moment when he looks off to the side like someone help me.  And Cyrus is watching because Cy told him to be prepared and he went in there like, I know what I’m doing and got slaughtered. Cyrus is like oh my God.  My third favorite moment was my favorite because it was so ridiculous to me.  The worst spies in history of tv.   Jake goes to meet the girl and he is followed by Mr. Obvious.  I was like, what the heck.  It was so bad I watched it like three times.” -Olivia
The scene between Liv and Rowan, the scene between Quinn and Charlie and then with Mellie and Fitz/Sally and her husband, those were my top three.” -Elde’a
When Olivia came into the office and she asked everyone to leave and made reference to Icarus.  I loved it when he was talking to James and told him to ask Josie about her bastard baby and when the preacher set up Sally. “-Jaha

SP027: Scandal More Cattle Less Bull S3, E5

Scandal Podcast with Jaha Knight

Play

This episode was great.  There were so many questions that I came away with for future episodes.  By the way they set the whole thing up, I knew Mama Pope was intrinsically tied to Fitz and whatever Rowan had going on with B6-13 back then.  I wonder if Rowan talked to Olivia’s mom with as much disdain as he talks to every one else…?  Something to ponder. This was the rumored #OctoberSurprise they kept hinting at since episode two.

The More Cattle Less Bull episode and the last one have totally endeared themselves to my #Gladiator fan heart.

I had two guests on to review last night, Langstan Smith and Jazzy Jones of BeBlogalicious and they talked with me extensively about the drama, the fashion and their predictions for the next episode and for the rest of Season 3 of Scandal.  A good time was had by all.  I leave you with a few images from last night’s episode and of course the audio and video.  Next week I will be joined by the Panel and I can’t wait to hear their opinion about these last two episodes.  You already know it’s going to be epic, right?  Tune in and catch the tea.

SP026: Scandal Say Hello to my Little Friend

Play

The Say Hello to My Little Friend episode of Scandal was the best episode thus far in Season 3.

I finally enjoyed an episode without being convinced of its merit.  There where a ton of things going on that made it exciting and I cover them (mostly) in this review.   Check out the audio and the video for  more.

Sorry for the delay of this post, my fellow Gladiators.  I had a snafoo and couldn’t find my hard drive with the intro audio.  If you want to catch my reviews before it goes live on the Podcast, you can always subscribe to my Youtube channel.  The reviews will hit there first.

Step TWO
Is going to see Rowan all of this part of Fitz’ plan? Remember when he talked about Step 1 and Step 2?
