bernita’s recent post on heroine’s made me
think of my aversion to crying. it’s strange how
your viewpoints and feelings about everything
bleeds into your own writing. i’m not much of
a crier, tho i’ve grown soft since having the bubs.
my heroine cries quite a few times in my novel.
tho she has reason to, as i basically torture her
for most of the book. at least i feed her as well. 8)
her reaction is appropriate, i believe, in those
scenes. at the same time, it sort of always makes
me worry that she may come across as too weak.
because that is what i associate with crying.
it’s ridiculous, but there it is.
don’t even get me started on making my
hero cry. i’ve posted threads about it on forums
and have had to have men tell me that it’s
fine for the hero to show some emotion. esp
given the circumstances. again tho, i was worried
he’d come across as sniveling and weak-willed.
which my hero certainly is not!
i’ve been stalking my heroine some online.
the actress’ name is liu yi fei. she’s twenty-one
i’m slowly adding to my links list.
please comment if you can and i’ll link you!
tho i’m sure i’ll get my whole reading list
up sooner or later. 8)
