TERRIBLE PROSE TUESDAY: “I’ll have what she’s having.”

There’s nothing I love more than a good romance. If done right, I even like belligerent sexual tension. I repeat: if done right. Having two characters fight all the time isn’t cute or romantic by itself. If two people are awful to each other, that doesn’t make me root for their happiness.

I think you know where I’m going with this.

To all my fellow writers: if you want to include jealousy and bickering in your romance, that’s fine; just make sure you include that stuff after the characters have known each other for more than a day.

In 2014, tired of my pop culture rants, my mom told me, "You should start a blog!" In 2015, needing a place to gush about the new Star Wars trilogy, I created this site. In 2016, while working an insane schedule at the local bakery, I stopped writing. That same year, I moved to Seattle. Picture every fresh-faced young woman you've ever seen stepping out of a taxi in a movie. That was me...only with a lot more anxiety and shorter hair. Living here has been a trip. I'm not always happy, but I find plenty of stuff to write about. I love to call out, complain, overreact, analyze, and reimagine. This site contains the fruit of that labor.
