I did. I wanted them to find some sort of respite from all the f*ckery they went through, and they proved that they loved each other time and time again.
Holy hell it's Mike!

Peeta has charisma. He's hard not to like.
I'm not done with mockingjay (reading hush hush first :D ) but I thought Cinna would be awesome with Katniss, except maybe the age difference :P But otherwise, perfect.

LOL love the pic Shay-la-wa, although I'm a team Gale because I hate in all love triangles there's the total jerk/kinda stranger and then the really supportive guy best friend that the ignores and choices the jerk/stranger. It's getting to be stereotypical and annoying for once I want a love triangle to end in the supportive friends favor.

I think romance is annoying in books. It's distracting, and almost never realistic. Dunno why I wrote it into my novel, but I'm REALLY regretting it now... Any tips for a writer who knows she has to write a kiss scene at some point but really doesn't want to?

Uh... don't write it. In the story I'm writing, the main character is a prince with a crush on this common girl, also he's rather suicidal.
The girl pretends to love him, but is really just using him for political reasons.
I'm gonna have to write a couple kiss scenes to keep it convincing, but I really don't like them. I'd rather see something like "Then they kissed" rather than an actual described scene.

I know, but that feels like cheating, and I can't bring myself to do it. But I also can't bring myself to write the dumb scene. And now I'm really stuck.

Hmm. I didn't know you were writing a book, actually. What's it about? Maybe I can help you. (I really need someone to help with novel-writing. I've got writer's block, and I'm going insane without a story.)
