Life Lessons: Talking Is Just as Important #MFRWAuthor Blog Challenge, Week 28 — 14 Comments

  1. It drives me crazy, too, to read a black moment that could be cleared up if the people would just talk to each other. But, people need to communicate with each other more in their real lives, so I guess it’s not so farfetched, even if it makes me nuts.

  2. Yes I agree. Bringing in the families is important. I have that a little in my current WIP since the couple have been friends so already close with each other’s family. I totally agree with the lack of proper communication as a drama device. Sometimes that happens, but most adults (hopefully) know how to use their words and talk things through. LOL

  3. “…there have always been strong and capable women and men who understood and appreciated them. ” you have no idea how refreshing it is hear someone ELSE say this instead of it always being inside my head 😀

  4. It drives me crazy when a misunderstanding causes so much grief because the two characters refuse to talk to each other! Makes me want to jump into the story, lock them in a room, and not let them out until everything is cleared up!! I vowed to NEVER do that in any of my books.

    • I know! I think that’s why I prefer books with a lot of adventure or suspense. Even crazy, outrageous conflict is more believable than the emo characters who can’t/won’t talk to each other.
