Top 5 Reasons I'm a Romance Writer
1. All the heroes are mine.
I just share them with readers when I'm busy
doing something else.
2. Who doesn't want to remember what it's like falling in love again
(and again, and again...)?
The world needs more romance in it, and I can
focus on writing stories where someone finds the one person meant to be
with him or her.
3. Witty banter and amusing anecdotes!
The ability to make characters
say things that you couldn't say in normal life is very freeing. It also
allows you to work out any number of innuendoes and euphemisms, and
even, at times, getting a little revenge with people who deserve to be a
villain in a book.
4. The boss is reasonable.
There are days when it's just impossible to
write funny or romantic, and on those days, I give my muse some time off
and try not to worry about the looming deadline. The motto around my
house is: a happy muse is a muse who is generous with the love scenes
and dishy heroes
5. It's better than non-fiction!
I've written several books on computers
and software, and in NONE of them was I allowed to torment characters,
make them fall in love, or write jokes. Being able to write stories with
all of that, plus deal with handsome men who just might want to visit a
widowed romance writer of mature years (*cough*) makes all the hard work
