Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and romance is in the air. Here’s a suggestion: instead of giving your Honey a box of fattening chocolates, how about presenting her with a romantic book? Perhaps one of poetry which you will read to your Beloved over strawberries and champagne . . . just planting ideas . . . After all, as it states in Proverbs 15:17, “A bowl of vegetables with someone you love is better than steak with someone you hate” aah, that King Solomon could sure spew romance.
I’ve asked my friend Liam of http://thelifeofathinker.wordpress.com to guest today on a subject he knows well. Please check out his site because I guarantee you’ll enjoy it! Besides, when he’s world-famous, he’s promised to thank the ‘little’ people (me) who gave him all this attention. 🙂
Romance in Books: Is it everywhere, and what can we learn from it?
Hello, it’s Liam from The Life of a Thinker here, and I was fortunate enough to do a guest post for my friend Ellie on this blog. So, I’m a writer (I write novels, poems, and articles) but an interesting question came my way recently which ties in very well with this blog, and the date…
Romance… Is it in every book, and how can we use it in everyday life?
To answer it briefly, in romance books, yes. But what about other genres? Like sci – fi, mystery, horror, for example? Another yes here. Personally, I believe it’s required in every book. Some form of relationship creates empathy between us and the characters, and is very important in a story, as that’s what gets them turning the page!
Romance, or any type of relationship, consists of friendship, trust, and telling people how you feel (which can link with trust). It is a great connection that allows other people to gain an insight into your thoughts, and offer possible advice which may be useful.
But it’s not just close relationships. It can be friendships too, any form of trust is useful for people. Trust is a useful thing in life. So today, value your friends, as well as your lovers…
