In real life things go wrong. They don't always go to plan. We fall out of #love as quickly as we fall into it. Love can be lost in so many ways and without fail its loss almost always destroys us. But in our #books, everything is a little bit better, a little bit more eternal and 100% less painful.
The reason I write is probably the same reason you #read. When you read a #book your #imagination introduces you to a new world, a world that may be completely different to the one you live in. When you read a book the #author's words bring that world to life. How many times have you read a book or watched a film and found yourself #dreaming about it afterwards? Your imagination making it a reality, at least for a moment. The world the words create is #captivating, it catches your attention and works hard to keep it, your mind living out the character's Happy Ever After. There is only one thing more tantalising than entering someone else's imaginings: CREATING YOUR OWN. When you put pen to paper and create a world it is exhilarating. Every word has meaning. You know every character intimately. You know every #secret, every whisper, every smell, every hidden look; and more so than even the most avid of readers you can get lost inside your creation.
If I'm right and those worlds that fill our books are just a little bit better than this one, the only question left is why. I put it down to the #HEA. Even the books that lack a #conventional Happy Ever After, you know the ones - The Time Traveler's Wife... One Day... - they still have an #eternal happy ending. Our characters might not be together at the end but their #love remains eternal, their love surpasses even their lives, and in a way that too is a happy #ending.
Book #Boyfriends Never Break Your Heart
Our book #boyfriends might disappoint us frequently while we’re #reading, every time they hurt our #heroine or do something that can only be described as downright stupid, but that disappointment is always short lived. In the long run, we still love them. Real people hurt you, it’s a given, but book boyfriends don’t. They can’t or they wouldn’t be our #perfect #heroes.
