Happy June to all writers! Join us at host Alex Cavanaught’s blog to share our neurotic fears.
Thank you to June’s cohosts: Pat Garcia, J.Q. Rose, and Natalie Aguirre!
This month’s question: Writers have secrets! What is one of yours–something readers would never know about you?
Well it won’t be a secret for long if I share it with you, will it?
Okay, okay, I’ll answer the question. The secret I’ll share relates to this line:
My life is like a romantic comedy, only there’s no romance and it’s just me laughing at my own jokes.
My secret: I suck at romance! (Interesting that I write romance novels, eh?) I’m perpetually single. I have rich, fulfilling friendships, but when it comes to romance, I seem to be commitment phobic. Strange dating encounters have included my puzzling attraction to gay men, as well as the time eharmony set me up with a pig farmer (not that there’s anything wrong with that–I mean, non-stop access to BACON, baby.)
Maybe I turn to fiction to find what’s lacking in my real life? Maybe my annoying habit of laughing at my own jokes drives away potential suitors?
Can’t wait to hear YOUR secrets!
Also, I finally got around to reading On Writing by Stephen King (recommended by several of you), and here’s my 4-star review.
