Thursday Thoughts: Universal Romance

universeThere’s a reason I write romance. Okay, there are a lot of reasons. And those are the same reasons I read romance. In real life, not all of our dreams come true. Not all of us get the happy forever endings to our stories. Bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad. I’ve always been something of an observer, living too much in my head and doing lots of wondering and asking “What if?” That’s why I write. All those “What ifs?” They circle in my brain like a kite of hawks riding the thermals. And romance…ah, the heady feelings of falling in love, that spark of sexual awareness when the chemistry is magical, the dreamy moments wrapped in the cocoon of romance.

So, yeah, when this little gem from the Universe dropped into my inbox, I added it to my list of why I love writing romance.

I do wonder, Silver, how it is that you don’t ALL just fall crazy in love with each other and get it over with…

Falling in love, I mean.

I have,

So little time, Silver, so many princes and princesses….

I have so many characters, and they ALL fall crazy in love and do goofy-dumb things, or heroic things, or sweet things, or foolish things. They argue and fuss and fight. They kiss and make up and make love. And they are all princes and princesses, just like we dreamed we were when we read books after lights-out, hiding under the covers with flashlights, then lying there in the dark, staring at the ceiling and dreaming of what will be. Make time to fall in love today.
