That Obligatory Romance

Mature post. Not for kids!

I have this new and pretty exciting idea for a Romance novel. Yes, icky I said Romance. They can be really insulting, mere porn as text. But they make lots and did I mention lots of money. I can’t figure out why. Perhaps the readers either hate their sex lives or don’t have one and want one so they are living vicariously.

So, technically this new one is a Romance novel. But don’t fret, I’m writing it. Expect ACTION, ADVENTURE, INTRIGUE!

And don’t expect that awful rape fantasy. No way. Or raping of children portrayed positively. To critics: NO I DON’T CARE THE CHARACTER IS 14 AND YOU THINK THEY ARE AN ADULT; THEY ARE A CHILD. AND HAVING A DEMON/SPIRIT DOING THE RAPING IS JUST THE SAME AS A HUMAN CHARACTER DOING IT. JUST AS UNACCEPTABLE TO PORTRAY POSITIVELY.

If only I won lottery so I could afford just writing all my books and not worry about other jobs. Sigh.

Okay fans, how about I have a new acronymn: TOR – That Obligatory Romance.

I’ve got a new TOR to write.

Ode to Donzago

By eugena On November 8th, 2011

Amazing what you find when you are a writer looking through a few old files on your computer.

I just came across the beginning of a 16th Century drama/obligatory romance story I had been writing which was probably one of my earliest works to have some comedy. Between the two star characters, I think I like Donzago the best, who is having a really hard time accepting the fact that his wife whom he abandoned (now his ex-wife, please start to understand that, Donzago) has turned to prostitution out of desperation. Does he really feel bad about it? No, not if you count the first words out of his mouth, pure jealousy that anyone else has slept with his wife (no, it’s ex-wife, Donzago).

I think Donzago will be spending this story trying to make up for his utter stupidity and selfishness. But first he has to get: 1) she’s his ex- and 2) he should actually CARE about her, not be jealous.

It has a pretty funny beginning. I may just work on it sometime.
