Just checking in...

Hi, guys!

ProvidenceMine here.

Just wanted to let you know that I am almost finished with the written draft of Chapter 5, so it won't be too much longer.

I want to apologize for the long wait. I've had a bit on my plate, and this story seems to be more of a struggle for me than the other stories that I have written on this blog. I guess that happens in the life of a writer, fanfic or otherwise.

There is a question that I would like to ask all of you readers out there, if you don't mind.

It's about the use of sexual situations in romantic fiction.

There are some people out there who believe that adding sex scenes to a love story actually takes away from the romance of the story.  I know that the director of the film Somewhere in Time decided not to show the two stars making love in the bedroom scene because he felt that it would have lessened the love story somehow.

Interesting point. I myself have thought about using sex less in any future stories in my Rand/Khobran series so as to bring the romance more to the fore. I don't know, because I think that the feelings of these characters are fleshed out pretty well, so to speak.

I often wonder if some of my favorite love stories-The Year of Living Dangerously, Spellbound, Picnic, Bus Stop-would have been lessened if sex had been added to them.  Again, I don't know.  Sex certainly wasn't needed in any of those stories, I can tell you that!

So, something to ponder on while I get Chapter 5 off the ground.

Please feel free to comment below, but any bullshit comments will be deleted.  It they are truly absurd and immature, you can also look forward to being blocked.

Just saying'

:D

Like It Or Lump It!

Hi Guys!

ProvidenceMine here!


The Oscars are not normally something that I care much about these days.  The quality of films have not been, shall we say, worth a few hours of my life spending in either a movie theater or on my couch in front of the cable television.

I have better things to do.

However, I think that this years' Oscar nominations are pretty exciting.

No, it has nothing to do with the diversity of the nominations.

It has nothing to do with a huge, flashy musical nearly breaking records in all its nominations.

It's one nomination that makes the Oscars worthwhile for me…

and that is the nomination of Mel Gibson for Best Director for the film Hacksaw Ridge!

That to me is really good news!

It's amazing how a man can say a few words of intolerance when he's drunk or in a bipolar rage and he becomes Public Enemy No.1, especially since intolerance seems to be very chic these days on social media(honestly, the hypocrisy of it all), when there are people in Hollywood who are pedophiles and get away with it!

Was it his politics that they didn't like?

Anyway, there are some feminist crybabies twittering away in the Twitter wasteland whining about the nomination of Mr. Gibson and calling him things like 'dirtbag' and the like.

I only have one thing to say to these femininnies...

and that is…

Get over it, Doll!

Mel Gibson paid his dues ( frankly, I think that Oksana-or whatever her name is-was a lying gold digging tramp) and you need to grow up!

When these liberals start taking aim at the pedophiles and the men who truly abuse women in Tinseltown ( a former governor of California comes to mind ) then I will start taking them seriously.

Godspeed to you, Mr. Gibson!

You truly deserve this.

You most sincerely deserve this nomination.

Take care.
