Developing Plot and Characters

I started sewing life -size cloth dolls un-expectantly in my mid-forties. I don’t know where I learned it from—I just had an insatiable urge to make cloth dolls. By the time, I made the 4th doll, the dolls started talking to me. They were very opinionated and direct about how they wanted to look and gave me unsolicited advice about events in my life.

The entire Jungle Beauty Goddess story came to me in a dream and I was informed that there would be 7 books in the series during meditation. I had never written fiction, I had no idea that the fabric dolls that I had been sewing were the main characters in my soon to be written book series.
The characters came in cloth doll form first, and then the story was downloaded to me. I really had a hard time taking diction from the universe. Book 1 is the most difficult book I have ever written. Maybe I shouldn’t be this honest but—the story doesn’t take off until chapter four. I foresee this story as being a play and I wanted to describe what the actors and scenes should look like. In the first 3 chapters, I painstakingly align the evolution of planet Earth with events taking place in the goddesses’ life; and share the goddettes taking their vows at the deity ball. Even though many people may find the first 4 chapters in book 1, Pretty Blue Ball as boring or a “slow-burn” as Kirkus review stated in their review- nevertheless, it lays the foundation for the series.

Have you ever gone to a movie that was moving slowly and you were dosing in and out of sleep, but later on you kept asking everyone else what was going on? This is the best way to describe the beginning of Book 1, Pretty Blue Ball. I tried to re-write the first 4 chapters to make it more thrilling for readers—but I couldn’t. Book 1 was my introduction to fiction writing and my left hemisphere wrote it. The left hemisphere is concerned with structure, rules, and organization. My right hemisphere began to take over towards the end of the book 1 and it completely wrote book 2, Aquatic Ball.

Each Jungle Beauty Goddess character represents one of the seven chakras, days of the week, and various gemstones, oils, and herbs.

JBG Namib is aligned with the crown chakra (7th chakra) responsible for our connection to our higher self and wisdom. Her color is purple. Namib’s day of the week is Sunday.

JBG Afar is aligned with the third eye (6th chakra) responsible for using our imagination, insight, ingenuity and creating new ideas. The chakra color is indigo and navy blue. Afar’s day of the week is Saturday.

JBG Sahara is associated with the throat chakra (5th chakra) responsible for our ability to align with our truth, to hear and speak the truth, and oral and written communication. Sahara’s day of the week is Wednesday.

JBG Kalahari is affiliated with the heart chakra (4th chakra) responsible for self-love, compassion, empathy, forgiveness and of course love in general. Her color is pink. Kalahari’s day of the week is Friday.

JBG Chalbi is rules the solar plexus (3rd chakra) responsible for courage, self-control, self-worth, self-esteem and your ability to take action. The color for this chakra is yellow. Tuesday is Chalbi’s day of the week.

JBG Sinai is correlates with the sacral chakra (2nd chakra) responsible for our ability to be creative whether it is having children or writing a book, our ability to live in the moment, sensuality, joy, and pleasure are located in this chakra. The color is orange. Sinai’s day of the week is Monday.

JBG Qattara is affiliated with the root chakra (1st chakra) which is responsible for our relationship with survival, basic needs, money, your body’s health, physical body image and identity, feeling safe and protected, and community connection. The color is red. Qattara’s day of the week is Thursday.

Each Jungle Beauty Goddess has a story to tell about incarnating into an Earth suit to experience the world that they collectively created.

I don’t think this is a normal writing situation. Do you?

Jungle Beauty Goddesses “Pretty Blue” Book 1

If you were given planet Earth as a gift to develop its life forms—would the world be a better place than it is today? What would your primary expectation and goal be for each human? Would you give them free will or plan their destiny? Would you demand that your humans worship you as their creator? Would you be available to assuage their every desire; and acquiesce to their demands, prayers, and wishes? Would you grow to resent them for living the life you imagined?

The Jungle Beauty Goddesses were free-spirited goddesses who enjoyed their freedom as the youngest children—and the last deities born to their parents—creators of the universe. Per the family tradition of being awarded a planet, the septuplets were given planet Earth as a gift for their birthday. Their siblings, also gods and goddesses of the universe since the beginning of time, warn them about the challenges of selflessness, power, worship, and divine duty.

The seven sisters struggle to maintain their own freedom as limitless beings, while sibling rivalry makes it difficult to accept their collective duty to fulfill the family obligation to the deity-hood as creators for planets.

The entire universe threatens to collapse due to their negligence and disobedience. They question the boundaries of their divine powers as they ponder whether it is possible to mold a being to be superior to its creator.

Jungle Beauty Goddesses “Aquatic Ball” Book 2

Sometimes your worst nightmare is having everything you ever wanted. Upon visiting planet Earth, the Jungle Beauty Goddesses discover that the life forms they created are in danger of extinction, and an unforeseen dominant species has positioned itself to take dominion.

Unprepared and disillusioned about how to access their highest vibrational frequency; the Jungle Beauty Goddesses face their own demise.

The only way they can save themselves, their planet, and ultimately the universe is by managing to align with their deity powers and the wisdom of their highest selves in the face of their worst fears, disappointments, and betrayals.

Jungle Beauty Goddesses “Dirty Ball” Book 3

If you had the power to make anyone in the world fall in love with you—would you? Jungle Beauty Goddess Afar revokes her deity vows and takes her destiny into her own hands by participating in the life she was born to create for others.

Afar embraces the deepest, darkest nuances of her shadow self with brutality, dignity, and integrity. She brazenly unleashes the murkiest qualities of the human condition and leaves the chaos for her unsuspecting sisters to clean up or suffer the consequences of losing the planet given to them by their parents–creators of the universe.

Jungle Beauty Goddess Afar’s actions give a new meaning to the saying, “Hell has no fury like a woman scorned.”

Enjoy an Excerpt:

Solution: We, the merbeings /mermaids/merfolks, are on the side of the Jungle Beauty Goddesses. We want to preserve the natural beauty of Earth and all of its life forms that are capable of adapting to Earth’s natural environment causing the least amount of damage to the cosmos.

We, the Mermaids, do not need to me be monitored like humans. We do not need the assistance of other worldly guides, angels, or higher order omnificent beings to exist and coexist peacefully with like-minded beings on planet Earth.

We will not use or create industrialized products or services, technology, or substances that will destroy the Earth’s natural resources. The Earth, as it is, without alterations, machines, or chemicals creates the prime and ultimate living conditions for our species.


We are the natural evolutionary heirs to planet earth bequeathed by the hands of destiny. Planet earth is rapidly becoming an aquatic planet designed for life forms which can adapt to a water-only environment. If you sign planet Earth over to us for safekeeping—you will never have to worry about this planet being selfishly exploited for its resources. You will never have to come here again and you are free to live your life as you please.

With the deepest Respect and Love,

Merlady Jophiel
