Gotta have love!

"But what's so wrong about love being the need? Love is the oldest emotion out there.  As soon as God created Adam, He then creative Eve.  Gotta have love!"

This was my response recently to a friend of mine {and future super famous author!}. We were discussing our novels, which while aren't straight romances, do focus on love stories. When writing a book, one thing you need to focus on is the character's motivation, their need. And while many critiques will downgrade the need of love as not quite enough to move a plot along, sometimes that's all there is.  So many things in life are driven by love, so why not books? So I happily focus on a good love story in my novels.  Because sometimes a little love is all you need and want.
