My Next Tryst

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  I also had a revelation while reading – maybe instead of turning the sexy, mysterious Gypsy musician in my first (unpublished) novel into a heroin addict and having him run over by a train, I should have kept him alive and saved the first kiss between him and my heroine for the last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.

  1. I’m with you on George Clooney. Strangely, I’m developing some odd would-be crushes… like the guy who leads the kids on Karada de Asobo… or the kabuki bloke who sings and dances with children in Nihongo de Asobo! I really need to get out and with some adult company.

  2. I have a huge crush on one of the male main characters in my book too….

    As for Edward, well, I can theoretically get his appeeal, but the frequent references of the heroine being held to “his icy chest” don’t do much for me. I like my guys nice and warm!

  4. Elaine, I have to agree about the icy chest thing. I like my men warm, too.

    Angela, I’ll have to check out the kabuki bloke…;-)

    And as for the movie version of Eric, hmmmm. What do you think? He’d have to look good with his shirt off.
