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.

A PEARL OF GREAT VALUE
When I look into your eyes
In the parable as in real life, taking a leap of
faith, giving up everything to possess the pearl of great value has its award.
Heaven (the pearl), in the case of the parable and heaven on earth for The
Bachelorette. Andi Dorfman gave up her job (not career) as an assistant district
attorney for Atlanta to find that one greatest gift the creator has allowed us
on this Earth, love. Her pearl of great value is that man who would complement
her on life’s journey. BTW, along the way, he'll compliment her.
For the men, she is that pearl, their heaven on earth. On this
season of The Bachelorette, more men than ever before have declared their love
for this woman. Why? Throw out the stereotype that in a man’s eyes a woman must
be barefoot (allegory for dumb). Andy is impressive, not only in beauty and
heart, easily demonstrated by the caring way she treated her suitors, but in
intellect, not so easily demonstrated. (She's a terrible dancer but that wouldn't have stopped a bachelor me.)
I had been particularly impressed when she visited Nick’s
(one of the two final men) family. Nick has eleven brothers and sisters including
him. She’s sitting in the living room surrounded by multiple pictures of the extended
family and some at various ages. Someone, in gest, asked her if she could attach
a name to each picture. She reeled them off without hesitation. This is a sign
of a well-organized and trained mind. It’s also a sign of a woman who is
passionate about getting to know Nick’s family. Applying intense desire produces
better results (yo, in writing too).
I know some of my blog followers are skeptical of this show
for various reasons. This season, however, included a lie detector test. Surprise. And why not every season? Andy’s
test was read on the air. Yes, she was on the show for the right reasons, not necessarily
a given. Some of the men lied and may not have been on the show for the right
reasons. We don’t know at this point, because, Andy, an attorney, decided to
rip the reports up and place her trust in her suitors. What? What? Her whole love
life depends on picking the right guy. Perhaps she had already decided.
Okay, one of the two remaining bachelors (Josh) lied when he
took the lie-detector test. Perhaps his lies were innocuous or perhaps he grew
into his love for Andy.
Monday night, July 28, 2014 is the finale and its fans
and perhaps some sceptics will check it out.
Are you expecting a Bachelorette promo below? Not this time. You'll just have to tune in tomorrow night to see Andy and her two suitors.
