Starting now, I’m going to write my drafts on OneNote. Why? I don’t know whether it is just me, but sometimes, drafts don’t save properly; I click save and it doesn’t become ‘saved’ in faded grey text, and at times the time and date of the post doesn’t update to the latest (i.e. if I wrote a draft on the 8th of May and then edited and published it on the 21st of May, the post shows that it was published the 8th). Maybe I’m not as tech savvy as I think I am, but for now, I thought I’d just play it safe and write my drafts elsewhere. The benefits of this are that there are proper grammar and spell check tools on OneNote, so I’m happy doing things this way. But, if you know how to fix this WordPress draft problem, your input will be appreciated! Anyway, let’s move on to the real topic here. Bear in mind, this is a rant, so I’m not exactly going to be formal, nor will my arguments be well laid out– this will be a train of thought. I’m usually passive, not very argumentative about things unless it is something that I have a strong opinion on, so buckle up and go on this rocky ride with me.
Okay, so we aaaall know what this post is going to be about. Countless other posts address this issue, but I’m in the mood to talk about my feelings about the ‘bad boy’ love interests in Young Adult Fiction. Now before you think, ‘oh Louse, you’re having one of those “I am woman, hear me roar” moments, aren’t you?’ well, I wouldn’t be writing this if this trend in YA has died down, and I am quite fed up and concerned about the dead-horse trope that involves the good protag/troubled love interest.
