SKB-468 - Romance Writing

Whether you are a new or experienced writer, this course will help you broaden your skills and understand exactly what makes a romance reader finish a book with that "Ahh" of satisfaction. You will start by learning about the genre of romance and exploring why you fell in love with your favorite romance novels. Then we will build on these insights. You will explore how to craft three-dimensional characters your readers will love and how to weave a plot so your story grabs the reader's interest from page one. And of course, you will gain valuable techniques-your "romance writer's toolbox"-to apply to your own manuscript. We willl also spend a couple lessons looking at and practicing elements important for any writer to master: setting, pacing, point of view, dialogue, research, mood, and tone. You'll take on fun assignments that will help you hone your craft.
