I think love is a huge factor in fiction and in real life. Is there a risk? Always. In fiction and in life.
Ironically, now that my children are older and gone quite a bit, I find it harder to work when they're not around. Too much free time!
I think growing up is difficult and it's a process that I'm always interested in, with kids and adults, they are often on two different universes.
Among men and women, those in love do not always announce themselves with declarations and vows. But they are the ones who weep when you're gone. Who miss you every single night, especially when the sky is so deep and beautiful, and the ground so very cold.
