Yey, my first FFF that’s actually on Friday, go me! This week I’m rushing off to Minnesota, so my following will be based on airport Wifi, but I’m determined and please post if you are a new follower so I can be sure to add you :D. I prefer RSS or email follows, but I understand if you don’t use those so Twitter/Goodreads/Facebook are all fine too!
This week’s question:
Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.
Hmmm… Typos don’t count I suppose? Haha. I suppose the thing that has come up most for me lately is in the urban fantasy/paranormal romance genre: the bad boy is at first mean or outright abusive, but the strong female is still inexplicably drawn to the inner person she can sense. I’m sorry, this is a horrible model for younger girls and a horrible model for women at all. If a guy is ever mean or abusive, don’t take that shit! It doesn’t matter what his excuses are! I’ll get off my soapbox now ;-).
I’m still pretty new to FFF, yey #2, so I would love to follow you! Please please please let me know if you are new (or even if you’re not? *highfives*) and I try to comment back on everyone anyway :D.
What’s your author pet peeve these days?
