Danielle Steel says she’s not a romance novelist. As the former president of the Trash Novel Fan Club (I’M owning it), I have to say, that’s a lie. What’s wrong with a romance novel? Seriously, guys. They can be well-researched, well-crafted, well-written. Just like thrillers can be excellent novels (John Grisham?).
Let’s call this a misadventure in feminism. If you’re girly, be girly. I like to read romance novels and I LOVE to read chicklit and I am in grad school for Serious Writing. So, like, whatever, guys. I’m just going to go back to sewing now because this is starting to sound mighty defensive.
