About Romance

What can I say about Romance writing? It’s amazing to see how little I enjoy trying to pretend I’m writing it. I say pretend because as I read the 12,000 words I have so far, it doesn’t feel like a romance to me. Bella in Twilight did more blushing than Mia has done so far. But, since I promised myself I would write a romance, I will stick to it and see what comes out in the end. If I decided to do the Romance in a Month class again, I will pick a topic that will interest me much more… something in space or in a fantasy world where much more is at stake than just the romance.

What is it about romance that is so difficult for me to write? The part I need to push myself into writing are the love scenes, I don’t even have a heat level. This part of the writing, being the most important in this genre, I need to step up. Yes, I’m coming out of my comfort zone. But only in doing so, will I grow as a writer

While I’m writing this romance I call Important Decisions, I’m also working on book 2 of White Swans. Yes, I’m having much more fun with this novel. If I can figure out how to release the restrains that keep my heat level so low, maybe I can make the little romance between Kendíka and Charles much more enjoyable for my readers, especially for the young adults who enjoy a good romance.
