Happy 2014 to all Insecure Writers! Thanks to Alex Cavanaugh for joining us together. (Check out more HERE).
Do you wish you could write faster? I do! I'm about 1/3 done with my work-in-progress, a New Adult volleyball romance titled Blocked.
The story features the daughter of the Republican nominee for president and the son of the Democratic nominee for president. They both play varsity volleyball at a Midwestern university, and naturally, they hate each other. They think the opposing political viewpoint is idiotic and hurtful.
Ah, but that's where the fun begins. Can love bloom among such differences?
There's a new book launching by a famous cross-political couple Mary Matalin and James Carville:
So I guess they can make it work! I watched an interview with the couple, and when asked how she tolerates her husband's liberal politics, Mary Matalin said "Hate the sin, love the sinner." Then she kissed his bald head!
In your writing, do you explore politics? Do you post political views on social networks? If you write romance, do you enjoy writing aspects of forbidden love?
