The reason that I just wrote my last blog about the homeless is because it’s a big part of my book. I don’t want anyone to think that my book is one dimensional, because my novel is so much more. I hope that my book not only arouses people’s sexual senses, but raises their awareness and social consciousness. I wrote “When I Remember Love,” not only to titillate but to show that fidelity can exist among married couples in love.
I was watching Nightline the other night and saw a segment called “Born to Cheat?” On the show Pastor Ed Young said that if a couple has a great sexual life it’s not necessary for the spouses to stray outside the marriage. This passage about passion and sexuality is actually a scripture in the bible. This validates to me the choice I made early on to craft my characters with integrity and fidelity. I was glad that I didn’t bow to the pressures from publishers and evaluators to add more conflict through cheating and drug use. I wanted this not to be the typical pop star rise and fall story about a celebrity being corrupted by fame and fortune. I wanted to prove that you one could write an exciting story without stooping to that level.
By the way, I’m still struggling with blogging but I’m learning to tolerate it.
Wow…this blogging thing is very time consuming. I’m a fiction writer, but my dear husband says that I can write anything. I want to share with aspiring writers how this experience has been for me, so I may help them in the future. Writing this novel has been the best thing that has happened to me except for marrying my husband, giving birth to my boys and being there when my beautiful grandchildren were born, When I was writing the book, every time that I finished a chapter I shared it with anyone that would listen. Writers tend to be insecure and need the feedback.
My husband and I are huge fans of American Idol. Season two was my favorite, because that is when I heard the voice of the incredible song stylist, Clay Aiken. He moved me and I was hooked. I was never a fan of any singer, well maybe Elvis but not really anyone else. I followed him like a groupie all over the country. He’s the ultimate entertainer and I learned a lot about his overzealous fans (like me) that followed him, spent our life savings, but we all had the time of our lives! Clay made me feel sixteen again. I had a boyfriend before my husband, who happened to be a rock star. Clay, who’s clearly not Aidan (my hero in my novel), helped me indirectly set the ground work for my love story.
My first real job was with a theatrical agency on Sunset Strip. I was hired because of my astrological sign. I’m a Leo! I couldn’t even type, but I fit in because I was neurotic and creative. Welcome to Hollywood! Stay tuned because I will give you hints and tips all about the joys and pitfalls of writing a novel. Is anybody reading my blog yet? Don’t be bashful- comment!
