writing about love but never get love?
April 1, 2012 4:14am CST
all people are confused when I talk that I have never had a boyfriend in my life. they are confused because of my words in the novel that I made does not reflect that I have never had a boyfriend. indeed, I have never had a boyfriend, but I never felt love. But that's me, who never told me of the feelings of men that I like, the feeling just will evaporate and no trace. I feel more likely to refer to a sense of love is not love, what do you think?

There are different forms of love, there's the theatrical love and there's the real love. The theatrical are those found in novels, movies, songs, and such. These are out 'fantasies' of love, the finding-your-knight-in-shining-armor type of a love, the ones that never fades and the ones that would cause sparks flying and butterflies in the stomach. This type of love is the love that we'd all want to have, the happily-ever-after types where we feel good knowing it, seeing it from the movies, reading it in prose and such. Then there's the type of love that's boring over time. The one that's not as passionate and may even fade over time. This is the day-to-day love real people in real relationships have. It doesn't sound as appealing as what is in the movie, neither does it compare to our imagination, but it's real and it's what we'll get. We won't guarantee the happily-ever-after mark, neither would there be dramas or extreme passion, there wouldn't be plots, neither would there be peaks and resolutions. All there will be is a plain relationship where two people decide to try things out and hope that the partnership would bear good fruits. Perhaps the main reason why you say that the novel you made didn't reflect you having no boyfriend is simply because we read books not to be confronted by the realities of life, we have that on a daily basis. When we do read a book, we want to escape from reality. We want to at least have that moment when things could be exciting and situations could be breathtaking. Writers of novels don't write from their own experience, they write from the imagination and daydreaming, that's why it's called 'creative writing'. If you'd start talking about life itself, that's no longer a novel. So don't worry about it. The more you are in tune with your imagination and fantasies, the more your readers would love it. Have a great MyLot experience ahead!
