Work is better than a career-type job if you don't want to watch your dream die forever. You get another career-type job and try to walk away from it and your marriage will not be happy, and your family will side with your spouse.) Write on the side the way you did before.
Let's suppose the husband and wife are having marital problems. The first thing the class must decide is which character to make the main character. Let's suppose they decide to make the woman the main character. By establishing the woman as the main character the class immediately knows the story will be told from her point-of-view. She will be the one to struggle toward a specific goal. And in the end she will be the one who changes and experiences an emotional transformation. The two maintain the appearance of a happy marriage on the outside, but inside, our main character is slowly beginning to change. She slowly begins to realize what her marriage is really like, without having the children at home to act as a buffer, between her and her husband.
Action would lead to spiritual enlightenment, but in modern novels religion often leads to some sort of perdition, such as incest or madness. In other words, in the modern novel the moral is the opposite of what was traditionally thought of as a moral. Often, modern novels have an immoral moral, in the traditional way of seeing things, like Don't tell the truth, it will wreck your marriage or Committing murder is a growth experience. But we don't read to improve our morals much anymore.

Students are often puzzled as to whether they can use the first person in their university assignments. The tutors quoted in Chapter 3 indicate the range of views about this. The question is closely related to the larger question of your relationship to your material, and your sense of your identity as the writer of the assignment. There may be a wide range of reasons for the use of the first person in a piece of writing. For example, you might want to signal that the ideas you are presenting are not definitive. It might be that you want to write about your personal opinion at some points and you want to separate this from some other parts of the assignment where you do not use ' I'. Often writers use I' in their introduction to establish their place in relation to their material, and then go on to present the material itself in a more distanced fashion. Above all, the use of I' can establish a sense of a relation between writer and reader and between the writer and their material. In...
At the heart and soul of writing is the desire to write. And your relationship with writing, like all other relationships, can atrophy from the day-to-day wear of disappointment, from lack of support, from lack of feedback, from lack of incentive, from just plain exhaustion, and from a thousand other things. It can be as tough to maintain love in a long-time marriage to writing as it is to keep the love alive in any other relationship. Maybe that sounds improbable (after all, how can writing be both your job and your romance ) but it's true.
We're an informal society becoming less formal all the time. The decision you make about what level of formality is best will help you create the mood you want. The level of formality sets the tone, creates an image, and has the potential to enhance your relationship with your readers.
You might lose your job, your friends or family, your children or your spouse. Your dream might cost you your health. Your happiness. Your life. Perhaps you think I exaggerate, but writers suffer from depression and die of suicide far out of proportion to our numbers. We have high divorce rates, far too many substance abusers, and as a group we are pathetically poor. I'm not saying that if you want to be a writer, you need to run out and get a divorce and take up heavy drinking. Far from it. A strong, stable relationship can get you through some desperate times. And only fools look for inspiration in the bottom of a bottle. What I am saying is that if you pursue your dream, some other parts of your life will fall by the wayside. You can't know what those parts will be yet. But if you persist, you will find out.
In the following activity about your relationship to your assignment, you need to write out your answers in your own, exploratory way.

I'll break the process down into several sections for you so that you can either read this whole thing or just hit the sections that apply to you. Your relationship with any editor will contain some or all of the following steps. Some steps you only have to go through once with any editor, while some steps you dance through over and over again for as long as you're writing.
A huge proportion of mainstream novels is called women's fiction. These novels usually involve stories of marital problems, divorce and adultery, or mother daughter relationships. Sometimes these novels are marketed as rack-sized paperback originals and may on the surface appear to be genre novels, but they're not. They don't have strong conventions and they don't follow formulas.
Sometimes extraneous words are not immediately apparent. And sometimes it is difficult to identify one's own writing patterns. We may realize our language sounds stilted or purple but we are not sure how to change it. As we discussed in Chapter 7, The Short Story, we get accustomed to writing with a particular syntax and cannot imagine a diverging style. You will recall this exercise from that chapter, as well. Remember, the intent of this exercise is to shift your relationship to your language patterns by examining that relationship at the level of the syllable.
