Take the Dragon Lady
But if you knew of her struggles in
the small Slovenian railroad town of Sevnica,
you might feel compassion.
The Right Dragon Lady
In our modern society the strong-willed woman has become desirable,
But our culture's insistence on continuing
to depict her
as a death trap
it remains a conflicted desire.
Femme Fatales are often the Crossroads
where the hero
learns there is more to women
and to life
than the surface.
But having stepped off the precipice into maturity,
he can never be the same person again.
Femme Fatales have become
after being thought tropes of the past.
Fed by digital technology and the Internet ,
desire immediate gratification,
jumping into adulthood quickly
without always considering
the consequences of their actions.
the Femme Fatale
can be used to
what it means to be
a whole woman,
a whole man.
As a child, I wanted Flash Gordon to choose
for the obvious reason.
As an author I had Samuel McCord
choose Meilori Shinseen
and found my novels took on
a depth and a fire
they might not have
with a traditional heroine.
Have you used Femme Fatales
or Bad Boys
in your novels?
Let me know, will you?
