About This Newsletter

Romance is thinking about your significant other, when you are supposed to be thinking about something else.
~ Nicholas Sparks

Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.
~ Marilyn Monroe

A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure.
~ Charlie Chaplin

Letter from the editor

*Heart* Happy Valentines Day! *Heart*

Finding true love in real life isn't as easy as in books. The characters have about 300+ pages to find each other, find some common ground, passion, to overcome a few hurdles, and then they're set for life. It only looks easy because it's a book and we always prefer the happy ending, no matter what the story.

Yet how do we figure out that our characters are compatible? Is their love written in the stars? They could be star crossed lovers from the past trying to fix a wrong. Millions of ideas spring to mind. Has astrology anything to do with how we as people fall in love? Does the same go for our characters?

Many will tell you that looks don't matter when it comes down to it, but they do. First it's the look, then it's that person's behavior, they way the carry themselves, their character in general. Someone will catch your eye because of those initial things. Then, once you get to know them, there may be passion and eventually love, but compatibility consists of all those mentioned above and more. Conversation is the key to anything. That includes romance. Body language can be a language on its own, and yet we also like to talk to that one person special to us. Want to know their thoughts, needs, loves and hates, what they're passionate about. It shows a way to figure out whether one is compatible with the other. Obstacles are a different matter.

Think about the many times you've had a crush on someone or actually fell in love? What made it happen? Even though people can be shallow at times, we always look for a deeper connection with someone. Perhaps we can't know what that person thinks at all times, but getting to know them on a more intimate level will help in that aspect.

The things we have in common with others can make that personal connection strong, or it can break because we see that, no matter what, it's impossible to establish a level ground with that particular person. Our characters come from us - even if they decide to take us on a ride - therefore we are passionate about them and want them happy. The goal is to find them someone who'll give them what they need, what they desire most, what they wish they had in their lives but has eluded them for the longest time.

Seeing how romance is in the air, perhaps you'll share some of your own stories with us!

'Til next time!
