Writing The Romance Novel – Seven Story Beats
by Kaye Dacus
Kaye Dacus talks about the seven romantic plotlines Billy Mernit described in his article “Writing the Romantic Comedy.” It’s a very informative article that breaks down the genre into seven descriptive plotlines. For all those romance writers out there, this article is very helpful by dissecting the meat and bones of writing romance. Far too often I have read some great romances that have missed a couple of these plot points, and I’ve thought how much more well-rounded their story would have been if more plot points were incorporated. The article is short and sweet and should take you no time to read, and I highly suggest you bookmark the site for later use.
