Harlequin Romance - My dream

So I have been thinking, this might be an opportunity for me. Some weeks ago I browsed Harlequin.com and found Write for us: Writing guidelines and it said and I quote "Interested in writing a romance novel for Harlequin Enterprises? Click on one of the imprints below for editorial guidelines that will help you to craft your story. Please note, we accept submissions written in English only."

So I read all about it. Since i write mostly in english and since I am a big fan of romance this might be my chance. I know this is my genre and all i have to do is write a novel all in english, check grammar and all. Cross my fingers and pray I get accepted. BUT the road is long and full of work ahead but one day, my dream might come true.

Soo tired right now!
I have been writing for a long time now (18:00-00:32) to be exact. I still write on MBL. I have my other work and i hope I really gets some couple off good hours of sleep. But if you are a writer and inspiration hits you and everything just goes smooth it´s really difficult to just to stop! Like today was amazing my character compleatly took over twice and I was surpiced! I didn´t know that twist of turn would ever come? It was like they had own lifes. So I have learned about the romantic wooing ever on a work day, really good history stuff of swedish heritage and somehow it all ended up with a fight. Who would have known that! I mean I am god over my characters but sometimes the really speak for themselves.

If I finnish this and it over 100 pages im happy! This will then be the first novel I have ever writen in english. Thats a challange but great, somehow i think english is better to express the lines and everything. The most difficult are the describing of setting and so on but it´s okay I have to rewrite it then i can make it better.

I also think the genre im writing for really don´t fit in here in Sweden. I doubt there are publisher here that care much for romance novels. If you know of some please tell me. Maybe my odds are better to find someone who know the genre in another country, like Australia, England, Ireland or USA. Then it´s good if I coutinue to write in english, the down side. I want my friends and all to be able to read it. So I don´t know what´s the best....

Mannen bakom lögnerna/ Truth about Jonah

See the mountains kiss high Heaven...

So all of you Nora Robert´s fan might know this poem if you have read the wonderful book The return of Rafe MacKade. You know the sexy bad boy who meet´s his dream woman in Reagan Bishop the antique store owner of Past Times. This poems underneath is the one he quotes for her...

It´s so cool that i found it after some time. The poem is called Love's Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of Heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single,
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle -
Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss high Heaven
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea -
What are all these kissings worth
If thou kiss not me?
