RESOURCE: Tips for Writing Romance

This month I promised some tips on romance and writing. Now my novel isn’t sitting on the shelves of any bookstore yet so I won’t be the one telling you how it’s done. Instead, I’m going to simply share with you a website I stumbled across while doing some research on writing romance. It’s called Fiction Factor. This website features several articles for writers seeking to pen a successful love story. A lot of it is pretty basic, but they still feature several tips that I found useful. Give it a look and let me know what you think.

However, I also want to open this entry up to all writers. Whether you’re a published author or a Word Document Warrior writing for the simple sake of prose, I’d love to hear your opinion. What do you think makes a worthy (or not-so-worthy) romance novel?

  1. There has to be a good plot and resolution, not just fiery detail. An example of an erotica author (which is romantic in its own way), who has mastered the art of writing romance with a great storyline, is Poppy Z. Brite. Her novel Lost Souls is brilliant, and happens to have a lot of sexual content. To me, any novel can be a graphic novel if you through in a bunch of sensuality and body parts, but a true art in creating romance is when storyline and sensuality compliment one another.
