Most writers talk about theme. To me it means the underlining meaning of their story. This includes scripts or even TV sitcoms(well the good ones). Reading over I SAID NEVER I’m seeing the theme in my book. Simply, it’s to have faith.

When I started out writing this book I thought appearances was the main point of the book. Of course that changed when I realized my heroine was having responsibility she didn’t want heaped on her. Then I thought it was letting go of your burdens.

Now why does having faith seem to have a stronger meaning in this book?.

My character lost hers. She lost her faith in love, in living a good life, in human kind. I can also say she lost hope. She also lost hope that she could love somebody unconditionally. She put conditions on her relationships with her family, her best friend, and any potential lover she had. Unconsciously she’d tell the guy you can have me physically but you can never have me emotionally, mentally
I find that powerful. Right now I’m in awe of my character and her bravery to let herself love again without guarantees.

All in all, I love writing.

    I appreciate the vote of confidence. I really need it right now since the true wait has begun on all my submissions. I can’t see how people can go at this with a venegance and stay sane.
