Recipe for Homemade Hunk (just add water)

Please welcome guest blogger Anne Noble. I loved this blog. I wished it was that easy.

Okay, so maybe it's not that simple to create a hunk from scratch.  But don't you love to read a stellar romance novel where the hunk is as real to you as chair in which you find yourself curled?  And it seems so simple to whip him up like the pancakes you made for breakfast. 
Just add water. 
Let me assure you.  It's not always easy to create the man through words on the pages.  The picture in your head isn't always the picture someone else will create when reading your words. 
Now some will say that makes me a bad writer.  But I disagree.  I know, surprise hun?  I think the best part about a romance novel is that though you have a general picture of what he looks like, you get to fill in the delicious blanks yourself.  You can fill those tiny spots with a little of the coffee shop attendant who winked at you last week while handing your daily mocha latte.  With the man working across the street wearing only his hard, tanned abs and a little dirt mixed in for ruggedness. 
It is not the exact replica of Fabio which a writer must give us.  No.  What makes a great hunk is the writer's ability to give us what we desire most.  Romance.

Hi, Anne. Love the post. As to the 'add the water part', I wish! But that's the great thing with romance novels--we can imagine 'our' hunk the way we want. Sometimes I wish cover art would never show the male's face, as a pic can really wreck my fantasy!
