1. There was frost on my car this morning. And not just any frost. This was heavy-duty, kryptonite frost that took twice as long to remove as it should have. VERY ANNOYING. My thought is, if it's going to be that cold outside, it needs to snow.
2. This past weekend was fun, if extremely full. Two sets of out-of-town friends came through, and there was lots of eating out and laughing. I was pretty much gone the entire time, and very little writing was accomplished. However, I saw it coming, and wrote extra all the other days of the week, coming in just on schedule. Now if I can just get past the dreaded Week Two... *shudder*
3. I am having serious problems with the love triangle in the book I'm reading. The book is excellent overall, but the love triangle is giving me fits.
Let me break it down. Our heroine is trying to choose between:
GUY A: The guy she's betrothed to, He's a bit of a jerk and she doesn't really like him that much, but he does make her knees go weak and her blood hot.
GUY B: The stranger she just met, a slightly nicer guy she's not supposed to be with, who makes her knees go slightly weaker and her blood go slightly hotter.
Now both of these guys are pushy, even physically pushy. I can't think of much difference between them, except that one is encouraging her to keep the status quo, and one is encouraging her to rebel. She doesn't have a strong emotional connection to either of them that's base on more than attraction. And at this point (halfway through the book) she doesn't care deeply about hurting either one, she's just drawn to both of them, almost against her will.
I am having a really hard time with this. The guys aren't different enough, and the I don't have a strong investment in seeing her choose one or the other. And I know she's going to pick the guy she's not supposed to, so I'm having a hard time finishing the book.
What do you guys think about love triangles? What makes them work or not work?
