I Need A Friend!
Friendship is so important in real life.
I consider my daughter Brandi my closest friend. My best friend outside of family is Kim. We've been through thick and thin, and we'll be friends forever.
But what I'm interested in here is books, yours and mine. And friendship in them. Do your characters have friends? Do they need friends?
In real life, most people need friendship. But in novels, it's not so important. Or is it?
Friends in books tend to be sounding boards (as in real life), but there's rarely any depth beyond the chat about the hero or heroine's love life. Not much bonding over silly stuff. Not much one on one time doing anything other than bemoaning how much the hero or heroine doesn't need love.
I would like to see a book where a real freindship was included. I realize there's not a lot of time or words to explore a friendship in a romance, and it's not the main focus. But it would be fun to see a book in which the Main Character had a real friend.
