SyFy Q of the Day: Enough ___ Already!

Before I even started this blog, I would occasionally pose a SyFy Question of the Day to my facebook friends. Sometimes, it was directly related to what I was writing, and I really did want some input to help me decide what direction to take with the story. Other times, it was purely fun.

Here’s one of my favorites, from March 2011:

SyFy question of the night: “Enough with all the ______ lately!” (OK, the easy answer is “sparkly vampires”, but I know you can do better.)

Frank                   Ok how about “monsters as human love interests”

AB                          Good…. good… let’s keep em’ coming, folks!

Hannah               Giant leprachauns frolicking to star wars music while eating swedish fish?          Lol I don’t think I get the question but I said the first thing that came to mind…

AB                          THAT was the first thing that came to mind?!?!? rotflol!

Hannah               lol well my mind is a very random and sometimes scary place…

Joseph                  Sci-Fi not Syfy 😛

There’s no “Y” in Science Fiction, especially not 2 of them. 🙂

Al                            Zombies…

AB                          Ah, yes, I was waiting for someone to say zombies! Ninjas?

US_Nessie                  Hunky werewolves? Well, maybe we can keep them around just a little while longer…

Glenn                   formulaic writing

US_Nessie                  ‎@Glenn that’s why I gave up reading Xanth. After, like, 20 books…

I would love to hear what you think! Even if you are reading this post a year or more after publishing, I hope you will leave a comment with your own ideas on this topic.

Post Script: I’ve wavered back and forth about the whole SciFi vs SyFy thing for a long time. Saving just one little letter in a tweet isn’t really saving much, and the Polish translation is a really strong argument against SyFy! I’m not one to make changes lightly. But I think that, at the end of this year, along with other structural changes I might make to the site, I will change SyFy Question of the Day to the name SciFi Question of the Day.

Joe will be happy. :)
