Confused-Just say…by Linda S. Glaz

Monday mornings, instead of Confucius say…it’s going to be…Confused-just say:

Woman who write romance novel is full of wishful thinking!

What is man who write romance novel full of?

Be careful. Think before responding…after all, Confucius might be listening in and this IS a Christian agency. I’d really like to know what folks think of male romance novelists.

    My thoughts go back to the “old-time” author, James Oliver Curwood. I loved the romance, which was in most of his books. He was good and had the ability to show his regard for women, but he could also write about some “deadly” women–whom no one would want to mess with. I thought his romance scenes were great. But … I guess I’m dating myself, when I say he’s my favorite author of all times. No, he was not like some of the modern male romance writers, because he actually was in touch with the “romance” part. He didn’t have to go into intimate details to achieve a sought after worldly goal. A modern author was suggested to me by a relative. I loved the story and mystery woven into it, but the “extra stuff” inserted into a few scenes made it so I could not share the book with my mother or others. It was way too much detail … when it came to the supposed romance scenes! It did not add to the book.

  2. Man who write romance novel is full of desire to make money off woman who is full of wishful thinking.

  3. This is based purely on what I know about the men who write romance. May not apply to all. Men write romance because they realize that’s where the money is. Romance sells. They may not have a smidgen of romance in their blood, but they can follow the rules and write what women want. Kind of like how a narcissist can pretend he’s charming and romantic until the vows are pledged and the costume comes off. This is not a criticism of men who write romance. It’s an observation of how they support their desire to write the world’s greatest novel.

  4. Generalizations can be dangerous; however, reading today’s comments made me smile. 🙂 But I do believe George MacDonald (1824-1905) was full of the Spirit when he wrote “The Marshmallows Trilogy.” He was a Scottish clergyman who also wrote poetry and novels for children and adults. I enjoyed several of his books and my children loved it when I read some of his for-children novels aloud to them.
