13 tips for creating a love story
So, you want to make a romance? And, above all, what do they want before the storyline begins and before they get together? The thing that makes a great lovestory is the same thing that makes every tale a story: Characters form a target and set out to reach it, but they encounter barriers to which they must of course find a solution (HINT: the bigger the barriers, the more powerful the narrative).
At first, in a romance the person may not know that he is looking for it. Maybe you need an alternative target to drive the storyline forward as your characters uncover their real motivations. Look at anxiety, sorrow, disappointment, treachery and envy throughout history. It'?s not easy to make Love.
Look at anxiety, sorrow, disappointment, treachery and envy throughout history. It' not easy - so increase the full spectrum of emotion. If you are in loving, everyone is motivated to do great things. There should be enormous barriers facing the lover, and the force of charity even greater than that (HINT: The lover will make almost every effort to solve problems).
Remember, LOOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING. There are two lovebirds who are like a beacon. When there is no fire between the cover art of your novel, the storyline is slack! At the end of the tale, both lovebirds were to be molten in the melting pot of their loves and thus become different.
TIP: Throw in a little space power and godly purpose - it goes down well. Arrange your encounter in history correctly, so it's epoxy! Begin your romance when the fire of excitement is kindled, not before and certainly not after the two lovebirds meet!
What is hooked about a romance is the prequel. How will it be when they profess their true affection for each other? Even if the two lover haven't noticed that they are loving each other and are playing a little too much - the readers always know best. Isn' it true, is it?
If possible, think all this through before you start typing the sequence - if not, research it as you type (HINT: there must be this power between them from the beginning - but they can't take it right away). Appearance is a big part of loving; think about how much you want to involve in the narrative (HINT: a great deal of groaning about sculptured profile and learned muscle is good, but be cautious not to exaggerate, plus looking deep into the other thing's eye - you know - can be a little cheesy).
Utilize a mindset that can capture or separate your two loves. You' re leading man and romantic must be wondering: Is he/she whom I like? Is he/she in love with me? You can use these inner conflicting ideas to plan your storyline (HINT: Never keep your fans more than five pages apart.
Parting is one of the barriers that love must cross. Consider ways to really distinguish the two, by time/distance/obstacles/feelings, and keep them apart - let the opportunity to ever be together again, despite their desires, seem ever more distant (HINT: Love strife is enticing, but you run the danger of the readers putting themselves on one side, so use it wisely).
While the ALL Powerfull Affair (a revelation scene) the outside worid should be in uproar. Don't ignore the renowned Wilkie Collin counsel, which is just as true when it comes to the first kisses or first love: Sarah Mussi's new album Here Be Dragons is out!
