Advice to a writer of modern romance
Posted August 30, 2011on:
This is a very tame story by an unambitious writer. The characters have no personality, the situations are hackneyed and the descriptions are trite. There has been no attempt at research and the details are therefore vague and implausible.
This is a writer who is afraid to express herself. My advice to her is, choose a new pen name, find a laptop you can use in bed, lock out any stray cats, flatmates, children, or husbands, put on some silk pyjamas, prop yourself up on masses of pillows and let rip. You’ll feel much better for it.
