    Yup. This was more or less why I sighed and gave up on being a pro writer. Without a winning series that pulls in the dough, you pretty much have to moonlight as a romance writer. And I can't rip bodices that hard.

    Why do women read about vapid, spineless twits like Bella? I suspect two reasons: One! they're young, and they have been trained to be submissive by a culture that believes girls shouldn't make waves. You want a man? Don't be too forward. He won't like that. Don't call him on his shit. If he upsets you, be passive aggressive about it. Make him guess what you want. Be a doormat.

    Reason two! Pure fantasy. Some ladies, no matter how strong they are, really do just enjoy the damsel in distress fantasy. It doesn't mean that's how they are in the "real world". It means that in their own head, in bed, that's what gets them going. They want the chance to surrender control.

    The flipside is Anita, who always wants control. I mean, I guess. That's what I read in that first book. For all I know she gets tied up somewhere along the line.

    Also, there is a "chosen one/destined love" thing going on in the Twilight books that I bet appeals to a lot of people. Especially teenagers, and especially teenage girls who have it beaten into their head that they need to find a man ASAP or risk being a spinster. It makes everything sooo tidy when the perfect guy just shows up to break your hymen.

    My big problem with Bella is she just isn't a likable or well-developed character. At all. Same problem I have with Anita, really. If you're going to drag me into your stupid romantic fantasies, your character should at least be someone I like and root for.

    Again, going to recommend the Darkyn books, because the female characters all kick ass and don't make me want to punch a wall. Some of them are submissives, some aren't, and they're all highly enjoyable guilty pleasures.

    Thanks, I just drooled on my desk. I appreciate that.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    amen, but along the same lines if it is not your thing do not say it is and try to fake it.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Pfft. I'm not into hitting or spanking because of my past. End of story, do not pass go. I had an ex try and say that if I really loved him, I'm buy into it. I told him to "go to hell, I got enough of that as a kid. It's not a fucking turn on and if it's a deal breaker, there's the goddammed door."

    I remember looking in a mirror when I was a teenager wondering what the hell these stripes on my body were.
