Perfection...is it perfect?
Once again I've been thinking. Dangerous pastime I know, but I can't help it. Sometimes my last two braincells rub together and there's a spark. The book I read yesterday had the most perfect heroine. I mean she worked as a kindergarden teacher, spent her free time with the elderly & shut ins, ran marathons, never bothered with makeup, forgot to eat when she was busy and looked sexy doing it all. Excuse me while I barf...errr
I'm done for now because I have to describe the hero. He brooded and looked hot doing it. Yep, that's it. He didn't get any deeper. I know more about his finances than I do his emotional state.
Is anyone else feeling way on the nauseous side? Yeah, I know we joke about men being hot & perfect, but if that was all there was we might as well fantasize about a cardboard cutout.
Men with faults, women with attitude those are characters that are real to me. I like smart mouths and smart minds. Give me a woman with curves and bad hair days any day. Hero's who crack bad jokes at the wrong time, can handle curves & know how to cook.
There's something tantalizing about characters with real faults, failures, and feelings. Do I write that way? I sure as heck hope so. My heros might not always be GQ handsome and my heroines will never be size two, but they'll always be real, always talk back and always have plenty to say about everyone else.
Because this month has flow by (Snoopy Dancing 'cause school started) I almost forgot I have a Quick Quickie coming out tomorrow. It's part of my Erotic Escapes series called Blame It On Bangkok. At only .49 this books a bargin for anyone wanting to try out my writing without spending a whole lot. Yes, I know there are a few of you out there!! Come on try me, you know ya wanna!!!
