I …moreI don’t set out to read many books with a lot of romance. It just isn’t my cup of tea. That said romance could crop up in just about any storyline. I had to ponder on all of the books I read to find an example of a couple that intrigued me.

I think the relationship of Arthur and Molly Weasley, from the Harry Potter series, is probably one of my favorites. Some people might not focus on them too much, but I love the fact that they support each other through thick and thin. Even though each has faults of their own, they love each other just the same. It is nice to see this type of mature relationship in children’s literature. It is a good example of how true loving relationships should be.

After thinking about this question, I started wondering if the relationship between Ron and Hermione was that way.

Spoiler Alert! If you have not read the whole series you may not want to continue reading this post.

In the beginning, they don’t seem like they would make a good couple. They appear to be complete opposites. Hermione is book smart and very talented with her wizarding skills, but her personality is a little haughty. Ron, on the other hand, needs some extra practice with his skills, but is goofy and wears his heart on his sleeve.

Later on, their relationship changes and romance brews. This is when I see some of the same characteristics of the Weasley couple show up in the young adults. Love has a funny way of washing away contradictions in couples. Sometimes this can be problematic if you become blind to hazardous faults and only follow your heart. Other times it’s refreshing to put aside another’s minor imperfections and focus on what really matters, that they are kind, compassionate, and love you in return.(less)

Writer's block can be difficult. I usually try to...I try to...oh, dear! I had an explanation a moment ago, but now it is gone.

In my opinion, the best way to deal with writer's block is to keep writing. Even if it has no relation to the task you were working on. Just like when you forget what you were about to say in a conversation, if you keep talking, the idea will pop back into your brain. It may not happen until hours later, but eventually it will happen. Just be prepared to write it down the moment it comes back.(less)

The Ruby Cell Update – Protagonist’s Symbol

Rowling’s Harry Potter series and Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Game.Writing The Ruby Cell has come a long way since its inception. I’m still working on some edits, […]

A.T. Baron A Tale of Two Squirrels is now available at Amazon.com and the CreateSpace eStore. I hope to have a Kindle version out shortly. Links can be found on my website, www.atbaron.com.

A young squirrel, named Effie, hears of an impending storm. She travels through the forest to asking other animals about the storm and gets help from an unusual source. Simon, a black squirrel, lost his home to the storm the night before. He helps Effie through the terrible weather and when her home is destroyed, they set off in a search for a new place to live. ©2013
