Despite the fact that I’m an erotic romance author, I’m not talking about passions in the carnal sense. At least not this time. I’m talking about the things you do on your own time, the things that made life full and fun and thrilling.
Example: My 2-year-old’s passions are making messes and using my office chair as an amusement park ride. He does both as often as he can. His eyes sparkle with glee as he splashes in his spilled milk or spins round and round on my chair until he’s dizzy. Makes me *almost* not want to get mad at him .
I’ve always been the kind of person who either does something with everything she has, body, heart and soul. Or not at all. The things I love, I do with gusto--reading, sewing, writing...consuming ice cream. The things I don’t like so much--like cleaning house--I don’t do at all. Or at the very least, as little as possible
Many of the characters in my books also have passions...and again, not just the carnal kind. They have plenty of those too, lol. I can name a couple heroines who are as crazy about ice cream as I am, one who is an animal lover, and one who is an eBay junkie. I think giving characters these kinds of traits makes them well-rounded and real.
So, what are your passions? Care to share?
