This blog is for educational purposes (although I feel like I learn just as much from your comments). Dig into the male POV (point of view) for hero and supporting cast, for good guys, bad and inbetween. Find gems or alternate ways of writing male POV.
When I give an opinion, it will be based first on scientific research (I was a research scientist).
THE ROMANTIC NOVELIST
Having temporarily run out of Male POV ideas, I'm blogging about things that will get you rejected by an agent or editor.
Ask a male author about your male character traits or thoughts.
Amazon links to my stories: Autumn Breeze, A More Perfect Union, Double Happiness, The Wolves of Sherwood Forest, Neanderthals and the Garden of Eden can be found down the right side of the blog.

Bizarro World, September 8, 2013
week I wrote about a strange rift in the space time continuum, otherwise known
as male/female relations. I wrote about the beach. Funny, at dog beach, all the
dogs seem to know it’s neutral territory. The Jets (bulldogs) and Sharks (tea
cup poodles) (refer to West Side Story for more) have no problem mixing but don’t
mix it up. For humans it is not neutral territory, it’ds vortex of sensuality
that sucks you into each other.
if you got my driftwood, boys and girls and men and women find it easier to
approach each other. Maybe because the adults aren’t wearing much in clothes
and the kids just love to play.
must be other places where this phenomenon can be observed. Yes. At any Romance
Writers of America function. Why is this not proof of an alternative universe?
news guys (males). The business of RWA is to further the careers and promote
excellence of romance writers. So they talk shop. Shop is about craft. Craft is
about the happily ever after, except sometimes in the case of erotica which
only makes the conversations spicier. So they talk love, and sex, both sweet
and graphic. They had no problem when I first joined. They paid me no mind as
penises and breasts, hearts and souls filled the atmosphere. I kicked myself. The
sweet romance writers and the bawdy also had no problem sharing a table.
was never personal, although once in a while a face would bloom red.
worried that I would fit in or cramp their style but they treated me like one
of the girls and we were definitely in the locker room.
got company but if anybody responds I will write concrete and very funny
examples to amuse you. So male type people, whataryawaiting for, come on down
to the next RWA function and join into a strange world where men and women have
no problems taking about the most intimate things imaginable. You should be so
lucky with your wife, or maybe you’d learn how to be so lucky with your wife.
I have to run, but I found out the hotel survellience tapes recorded our meetings. So guys, what are you waiting for?
