J is for Jackasses and Jerks!

Ah, so I ran out of time--kind of--to do the J post. But, better late than never is my policy. So, lately I've been encountering a lot of jerks lately. I'm not sure what it is, but there are a lot of them out right now. I thought that was supposed to happen when the weather started turning bad! (Albeit... the weather here hasn't really started turning good yet, soo...) Haha.

It got me to thinking. I feel like there are a lot of jackasses for love interests out there. Have you guys seen it too? I can't really think of any love interests that are complete douches at the moment--but I know they're out there! Heck, Ax started out from a really asshole-y character. (I have since changed that though.)

How do you guys feel about MC's falling in love with jerks? (Of course, this is kind of pinpointed to stories with romance in them :P) Sometimes it works, like everything else in the world, and other times it's just contrived. I'm definitely on a case by case basis with jerks in novels.

On another note, been making scenes out of the plot. Nearly finished~ Then I'll get to wriiiiite~~~~~ (I'm so excited.)

Thanks for answering my sex question for the I post, everyone!


  1. Maybe we can all relate, as we've all fallen for a jerk... well okay that's not true, not ALL of us have. :D

  2. Trisha - Haha, there are a few of us out there who haven't. :P

  3. Congratulations on near scene completions.

    The world is filled with Jackasses!

  4. I'm starting to grow pretty tired of the main character always falling for a perfect knight in shining armor or a bloody jerk. Too bad there aren't more well rounded love interests around.

  5. Ann - Thank you! It definitely is.

    Steph - I agree, I think that there should definitely be more well-rounded love interests. People need to stop with the extremes!


I like reading what you've got to say, so go ahead and make my day! :)
