SO, I have found a new addiction. My friend was watching a series on Netflix called Boys Over Flowers. So, I watched the first episode with her. That’s how it started. I had to binge to get through the series. I’ve been deeply immersed in Korean drama for the last week.
Sad part is reaching the end. You want more. But the series ending might just leave things hanging, or leave a big space before the HEA. And that’s where my writer brain kicks in, filling in the details in between.
Thank God for Wattpad. I can write some fan fiction using the characters to fill in the spaces that my brain craves, and practice some tropes in the process. Nothing like some good exercises with some sweet romance to hone the writing tools.
I’ve come up with Gu Joon-pyo (Main alpha Korean male billionaire from Boys Over Flowers) two years into his stay in the US before coming back to propose to Geum Jan Di. He seems to come back a bit self-assured. So what happened, right? Well, what if he bumps into a Taylor Swift-like American pop star that is more famous and rich then he? I know, right? Should be fun.

Well, if you have no idea who I’m talking about, it’s all good. Even if you haven’t seen the show or watched Korean dramas, you’ll get it. I’ve put up my new project onto Wattpad. It promises to be a lot of fun. I’m not sure how many chapters it’s going to take to finish it. We’ll let the characters decide. So, join my writing play land on Wattpad.
Oh, and yeah, I am working on my other writing projects. I’m just playing hooky for a while. It’s just so much fun. Then, I’ll return to my paranormal romances. Vampires still rock. But Korean vampires, now that’s fun too.

Meanwhile, now I’m watching “The Heirs” which has got a lot of English and takes place in California. Already has my attention, though we Californians don’t all live by the beach. That’s like a million dollars for a one bedroom house. But hey, would be nice if we could. I still have to drive 45 minutes to get to the beach if there’s no traffic. But I digress. Looking forward on bingeing on this series next since it’s got home in it.
So, take care, and I’ll see you around the writing block. -Marilyn
