If I’m going to be honest, I’d have to say I’m usually the kind that an editor would want strengthened. (Think Mia in Princess Diaries before she found out she was royal.) I don’t like conflict, I almost never speak my mind and I’d rather drive myself insane looking for the good in someone than believe they’re all bad. But guess what?
I’m having the sort of week that would test any romance heroine, even a kick ass one, and so far it hasn’t beaten me. I’m stoked about that last part, but the point I’m trying to highlight is that every woman has the potential to be the heroine in her own life. We don’t always take up that challenge, and sometimes we rock it more than others, but that role is permanently reserved for each of us whenever we wish to make use of it.
If you get a chance to do something romance-heroine-worthy… I hope you’ll grab it and make the most of it. Be the puppet master, step into the spotlight or accept that challenge. You might surprise yourself by discovering a hidden talent.
