My Love Is Like A Melody Sweetly Played In Tune

I am a romanticist. I write about the incredible power of love and how it can change someone's history. The wedding theme has surrounded me throughout October.

Last Wednesday, a couple who'd been married for seventy-two years, died only an hour apart. The story hit the media in full force and many posted it all over their Facebook and Twitter feeds. If only writers could be as steadfast as that marriage?

In a time where love is fleeting and passion is displayed in reverence to what everyone wants instead, so much rides upon a person's perceived notions. We assume the roles of statues and models, acting like everyone else. We do what others do to look the right part. We write to impress agents, publishers, editors, critique groups, reviewers, friends, and family. Do you ever write to impress yourself? Are you truly happy with what you write the first time? After all, art is "the quality, production,expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance." (www.dictionary.com)

Your work is truly unique and don't use others poor judgments as an excuse not to show the world what you are capable of.

Upcoming events:
-I received the 2nd-round edits for To Love An Irishman. I am currently working diligently on those.
-www.youtube.com has asked me to create a revenue account. They will place ads on my video blogs and I will receive a percentage of the income. So, therefore, I am in the process of creating several video blogs to post a month (probably once a week) so viewers will be able to tune in regularly to my updates.
-Some content featured on the video blogs will be: my journey on the publishing/editing process, read excerpts of my past novels and upcoming ones, and an explanation of historical facts...

If there is anything you'd like me to talk about or if you have any questions, I will start a live Q&A session where I answer your questions in a video.

Thank you so much for reading...and until next time...

Happy writing!

-Diva J.
