I mentioned before that my mother-in-law thinks that I’m having an affair (probably because I’ve gone out of town several times over the past year due to book-related events). Well, I’ve got another one tomorrow that I’m really looking foward to. I’ll be attending a book club meeting in Kobe. Apparently there will be wine. Looks like a good time!
I still think my husband is hot, but since my mother-in-law thinks I have a boyfriend, I’ve been trying to decide who this theoretical lover would be. I’ve got a crush on Obama, but he’s happily married, and I respect that. George Clooney would be another option. But today I’m thinking it’s the surfer guy/yoga guru Eric in my novel.
Meanwhile, moms all over the place seem to be in love/lust with Edward Cullen, the vampire in Stephanie Myer’s bestselling series. I’ve started reading Twilight. I think I get why these books are so popular. I also had a revelation while reading – maybe instead of turning the sexy, mysterious Gypsy musician in my first (unpublished) novel into a heroin addict and having him run over by a train, I should have kept him alive and saved the first kiss between him and my heroine for the last page.
