Did THAT get your attention? Lets talk about SEX in a novel… It certainly adds interest and may make a young and horny reader want to initiate sex with their significant other right? Well I read 2 novels a week, and most of them have at least one sex scene. Most novels have quirky people in them because writers have to make their characters interesting don’t they? Or we will be bored out of our gourd and stop reading! Right? I know from experience Irish characters will have red hair and some version of green or maybe even blue eyes. German ones might be blonde haired and blue eyed but not always, as is the Nordic ones. But many times younger writers who still have some sort of sex drive will add a few steamy sex scenes. At my age (59) and with the typical assorted health problems (Pelvic Organ Prolapse) I just don’t feel sexy or want sex like I used to. Can you older women relate? Maybe your husband has health problems also, and he lost his desire, who knows… All I know is the woman in these books have a much wilder sex life than I ever had even when I was young and horny myself.. (chuckle), but sometimes I skim over the sex scenes. Yes I’ve been there and done that probably or possibly, but I don’t go there and do that anymore.. Ugh! Yes of course it would be nice to have a sex drive ad have conventional sex again but in my case (POP) there are obstacles to that urge, if I had an urge.. ha ha. Anyway I just wanted to say that I will continue to read these books, even with their steamy sex scenes because the romantic and relationship obstacles are interesting to read. I enjoy a good plot, but some writers keep writing the same plot and change the setting and the characters are all basically the same! BORING! Yes give me your quirky ones, I feel I am quirky also and I relate. WE all like to feel we are unique and a unique character is relateable is it not?
NOTE: Spellcheck assures me relateable is not a word and gives me no suitable word choice to correct it! Can’t they update the app? I get “Relate-able”!
I’m an artist… maybe you can tell from my profile picture? That pink Rugosa Rose? Well I admit to having dried up in the creativity department I have artwork I started a year ago I need to finish and give to the person already! I should be ashamed of myself! I even bought 10 huge sheets of hot pressed watercolor paper that I cut into 4 large sheets each! So, I have 40 pieces of paper waiting to be drawn and painted on! I need to FOCUS on my artwork in January!
I’m not a big griever and I feel bad about that! My two sisters still grieve for our mother who passed on 3 years ago Dec. 6th of 2014. My one sister claims she breaks down bawling from time to time when she misses mom. My other said she’s still grieving.. and I image she cries too, she always was the most sensitive sister. I don’t get depressed, I don’t really cry about it. I did feel very saddened at the time of her death and was a little depressed for a few months and yes I cried a little and had to get used to her being gone when I go to visit. I always talk about mom with dad. I think it’s important to keep her memory alive. I just accept what happened and live in the present moment! I admit on occasion I feel sad and miss mom, but not to the extent two of my sisters do. Is there something wrong with me? The same thing happened when my grandparents died and my aunts and uncles died. I just didn’t feel overwhelming sadness like I suppose I should. I’ve always had the ability to live in the present moment and what happened in the past just stays there most of the time. I know how really bad we will all feel when dad passes on someday. We have gotten much closer to him after mom died.
Word of the day: VERKLEMPT.
I saw this word in a comment about a pit bull pup who was food driven and very full of himself.
overcome with emotion; clenched; also written ferklempt
Our bodies are very flawed as you know. One side of our body is not exactly like the other side. One nostril may be bigger than the other, one eye might be another color. One eye may be bigger and or higher. One breast may be bigger than the other and usually is!
For instance I shower and put on deodorant everyday, yet if I did some sweaty heavy cleaning I notice the left armpit will stink and the other won’t. My left ear produces much more wax than the right which hardly produces any. My left breast is smaller than my right. I have a small dimple in my right cheek but not in my left and my smile is not balanced out. One foot is 1/2 size larger than the other!
I’ve seen lots of flaws in other people. Some are more attractive than me, some less, and I consider myself rather plain to look at. I know I’m not the only imperfect human specimen out there in the world and it makes me feel better knowing we are all perfectly imperfect!
I was recently diagnosed with high cholesterol last month. My triglycerides were 320 and considering 150 is normal something has to be done. I wasn’t going to take the cholesterol meds and opted to change my diet first before trying any medication, but I wasn’t good at following the diet, so a week later I went to my patient portal and messaged a request for the medicine. Especially after considering heart blockages are the norm in dad’s family and bypass surgery has been done on dad’s 4 siblings. Dad has gotten away without the surgery. He takes his cholesterol meds and downs 2 TB of flax meal mixed with some 1/2 and 1/2 everyday! Doesn’t that sound horribly throat clogging? I suppose I should do the same with the flax meal it seems to have helped him a lot but it gives horrible gas! Ugh! So I need to cook a Mediterranean diet for my husband’s Chronic Kidney Disease, and I eat the same food usually, so that helps too I hope. I go back for blood tests in December to see if this helps.
SPIRIT MOON by William Sarabande (c) 2000. Do you know of this writer? He writes of Early Americans and other early civilizations. There are several writers of this genre which I used to read all the time until I got sick of it. Now I pick one up every now and then but they are usually printed with tiny fonts and have many pages, these “Cave man sagas” as I call them. This one is really about several different Native tribes in North Amercia. One tribe being the Inuits or Eskimos. The main characters are Mowea’qua a young healer woman of the OLD TRIBE who is much hated by the others and her side kick Masquash a 6 year old son of a shaman who runs away with Mowea’qua to save her life. Then Ne’gauni a one legged future shaman who loves her. There are other important characters of course. If you like this type of novel give it a try. I just wish it came in large type for these old eyes.
Here is where the story takes place:
Will I get in trouble for posting the map? I hope not, it may encourage people to read Sarabande’s book.
