I loved last nights episode! I've always liked the show but have been disappointed recently with the direction they went on a couple of characters. Definitely not a deal breaker though. Last nights episode really struck a cord with me because of my desire to be the best writer I can be.
What makes a love story stand out?
One of the female characters (Yang) went on a bit of a personal journey. She was reading an old journal for Meredith and talked about a love connection that read like a Victorian Era novel. The writer had Yang experience it first hand with her new love interest. Chaste. Sensual torture by eye contact and a soft touch as they pass in the corridor. Awareness.
Dr. McDreamy is trying to find the perfect way to propose to Meredith. Of course people start to discover his intentions and have loads of advice. Does he listen to her best friend? Her actions in the past have been to run when things start getting serious between them. Does he go grand gesture or simple and elegant? Romantic? Symbolic? As more people find out he has difficulty keeping it from her, which sends her in panic mode with worst case scenarios. She's afraid he wants kids...and is scared of her dysfunctional.
Next week is a must watch show. In the meantime. I think I'll go through my chapter and see how I can make my characters more aware of each other.
