Writing a romance novel
Have you always wanted to write a romance novel but didn’t know where to begin? If you have better than basis writing skills, the ability to follow simple guidelines and a steamy imagination, you could be the next Danielle Steel or Nora Roberts. If you’re interested in writing romance novels, you’ve probably read a few and noticed that the stories change but the basic ingredients stay the same. Following the right recipe can lead to your romantic success. Your romance novel must adhere to your chosen genre or category. Whether Contemporary, Historical, Erotic or one of the many others, find your favorite and study it by reading the top authors in that genre. Fail to follow this part of the recipe and your novel is doomed from the start. Like a Hollywood script, your novel needs its stars and supporting cast. Romance heroes and heroines are emotional, driven, conflicted, sympathetic and exciting. They need active inner and outer lives to draw the reader into their world. Your supporting cast, however, should just support the heroes and heroines. Don’t give them independent issues that distract from the stars of your novel. Your novel must have internal conflict. External conflict, such as an illness, can play a secondary role but the inner conflict is the soul of your novel. Your heroes and heroines must be driven by a tension that the reader can identify with and a conflict that they desperately want to see them overcome. The longing for eternal bliss is at the heart of every good romance novel. So give your heroes and heroines some happy and passionate times in the mist of all that conflict. While it depends on the genre, most romance novels only have one or two sex scenes. But without the tension with and between the hero and heroine, you completely lose the appeal of those moments. More than any other reason, hopeful romance novelists lose all hope of being published by writing poor dialogue. While it must be believable to the romantic, the words of your heroes and heroines are usually left field of real life. Balancing the real and the romantic is an art and can be difficult to achieve. The trick revealed by many top authors is that you must get to know who your characters are, how they feel, what they think and what they want. They’ll never be real on the pages if they aren’t real in your mind. Give each a face, a body, a sound, a smell, strengths, weaknesses and an actual and consistent personality. While you want to study the top authors in your genre, you will never publish a novel until you find your own voice. So go ahead and give yourself permission to write that beginner’s novel. Once the first one or two are out of the way, you’ll be on your way to romancing millions of devoted romance novel fans. Read more about genres and get started on your basic training. Your Romance Novel awaits.
