Urban Fantasy: Creating the strong female protagonist Jane Brown
Closed - This job posting has been filled.
Erotic Aria seeks to collaborate with a young but mature female creative writer to create the strong paranormal protagonist Jane Brown.
Jane Brown is a shapeshifter, a large cat. Her story is that of her development: she has to come to terms with being a shapeshifter in a world that is primarily populated by humans. This is urban fantasy so there is magic in this world, and there are angels and demons and gargoyles and vampires and werewolves and whatnot but primarily there is Jane Brown who is a shapeshifter and who isn't entirely to pleased about it but who cannot very well be anything else.
And shapeshifters need to shift. And they need to hunt. They need to kill. They need to eat fresh bleeding meat. This can be fairly complicated in a world primarily populated by humans.
I have created a backbone document of sorts that describes parts of my vision of Jane Brown. My standpoint is that of a mature reader, a lover of the strong female paranormal protagonist, and that of a publisher. Please read this document as it will provide the basis for our collaboration.
This project is an exploratory project. On the basis of the aforementioned document you will create three sketches of not more than 1000 words each but ideally only around 500 words each, where you paint three pictures of Jane Brown as you see her.
This project is for $30 not including oDesk fees.
If you and I are both happy then this project will lead to other projects where you continue to flesh out your vision of Jane Brown through micro fiction and very short stories, until such time as we both think the time has come for longer works. The payrate is $10 for micro fiction and $1 per 100 words in longer fiction (1000 words and above).
Below is the fine print, please read carefully:
Please make sure to visit http://EroticAria.com before you bid on this project, to make sure you agree with how we handle things. Please also note that Erotic Aria just went from Alpha to Beta, we are semi-public now but expect to go properly public through gentle promotion late in March.
Erotic Aria is a very public site built in such a way that everything posted can be shared on social networks and located through search engines. The long term goal of the site, in working long-term with individual authors, is to enhance online awareness of their writings.

IS ENGLISH NOT YOUR FIRST LANGUAGE?
We absolutely welcome approaches from women who don't have English as their primary language and/or who live in countries and/or cultures that don't adhere to accepted Western standards. However, we require an above average command of the English language and absolute honesty about your country and culture and heritage.
ABOUT THE SITE
Erotic Aria is an almost-public but already budding literary social hub for writers and readers of erotica, paranormal erotica and the very very personal blog.
YOUR SEXUAL TEXT
Your sexual text should be explicit and you should of course call a spade a spade and you should never shy away from colorful, descriptive language and you are of course free to use coarse language if such is the nature of your beast, but your choice of words should never be vulgar, obscene, degrading, violent, filthy or discusting - in other words, no smut.
All writers must adhere to certain guidelines.
ABOUT YOUR APPLICATION
Please tell me a little about yourself and your thoughts on Jane Brown and please submit a sample of the kind of writing the site might expect to see from you.
Thank you for reading.
