1. A fixed or strong belief. See Synonyms at opinion.
I am currently reading Fifty Shades of Grey and, I must sadly admit that, I had to put aside my conviction and succumb to the allure of this read.
Folks, I got a stiffy.
I DO NOT read erotica, nor do I read books that are as trite as this, but there is something about it that is pulling me in. I spent four hours last night trying to finish chapter six and I was disappointed I had to put it down.
It isn't the writing that's captivating (the characters, scenes, worldbuilding or sex for that matter), it's the idea of meeting someone new and giving yourself, mind and soul, to their every raunchy, mouthwatering, bootylicious, BDSM desire. Is it getting hot in here or is it just me?
The book is basically about what we do when we meet someone new, which is have lots of sex. It is this very "energy" that beguiles so many to love this book. I think psychologists call it "New Relationship Energy." But what do I know?
Fifty Shades of Grey is a novel I would never have touched if it weren't for the fact that I will soon endeavor into this territory. I firmly believe erotica should only be read by women (for obvious reasons), but I need to see what works if I am to write one successfully.
So, with my conviction aside, I shall thread further into the Grey.
Wish me luck.
