Why I Love Writing Romance

 

Happily-ever-after books or movies have always been my escape. They’re one hundred percent guaranteed to help me smooth over a bad day, forget my troubles or worries—at least for a little while.

They’re also great at helping to flip my mood around. If I’m feeling grumbly, I find a quiet spot and dive into a book for five minutes, which usually leads to…several more minutes. LOL!

Romance appeals to my happy gene, my comfort gene, my all-will-work-out-okay gene.

Which might give you a hint as to why I’m not necessarily a fan of epilogues. THERE, I SAID IT! I am not a huge fan of epilogues.

Now wait a minute. Before you unfriend me from all social media: I would never say never. There is sure to be an epilogue I need to write in my future! But you won’t find one in any of my recently published books.

Let me explain. Hellooooo, are you still there? 😉

When I read the last line of a romance novel, I’m in my safe, happy, comfortable zone. Reading the epilogue sometimes puts a damper on things for me—it allows reality to seep back in and I don’t always want that.

I want what happens next to my beloved characters to be created in my own head. Or maybe not. Maybe I just want to leave them there, suspended in their happiness from that final page.

So I don’t always read the epilogue. Shocker, I know.

Hope that makes sense. Of course, it makes perfect sense to me. LOL

Currently MinnChica is devouring every romance book she can get her hands on, especially ones that feature 'friends to lovers' stories.
