I've been doing much thinking of late about our favorite little sub(sub)-genre, Science Fiction Romance. Now if someone were to put together an ad campaign to promote SciFiRom, what would they do?
1. Come up with a readily identifiable logo? Tall order to find just one that unifies the big wide world of SciFiRom.
2. Come up with a motto. This seems doable. For our purposes, more of a log line or tag line might work. "To boldly go where no man has gone before." "May the Force be with you." "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." "Get a job. Get paid. Keep flying." (You'll recognize most of these from my Great Quotes in Sci-Fi last week. :)
So I wanted to come up with a motto to post under the header of my blog. A Science Fiction Romance motto. I gave it some thought. I wanted something short and catchy that embodied Science Fiction Romance, but didn't limit it to space vessels, other planets or futuristic elements. So it had to have universal meaning, a broader meaning than just the words at face value. Maybe a common phrase with a twist.
Aha! *lightbulb* I think I have one.
Science Fiction Romance. The sky is not the limit.
(OK, other than it's the title of Neil deGrasse Tyson's book, but titles aren't copyrighted.)
Have another suggestion? OK, I'm all ears. Give me your ideas. Let's brainstorm.
