writing-romance-2Could this be part of your lifelong dream? Relax. Here you will learn how you can be an amazing romance novel writer. First of all, you should be able to read the available novels regularly. Romance novel writing started some time back in 17th century; so many of these novels are written almost on daily basis. It is not an easy task to write these novels despite the experience you could be having with your life. It can be challenging to turn action into words and be able to explain each and every occurrence in the story.

Some of the romance novel writers concentrate on the sad ending of a love relationship. Lovers might double cross one another and lead to the unhappy ending. Romance books entail two characters falling for each other and end up in a permanent union of marriage. These stories also deal with the happy ending where writers engage the readers in their expectations of a happy union. The lover may also have to go through hell before they reach their destination.

In every generation, you will get a romance book to show the preferences and opinion of different people. Readers would want to know what would work for them in their relationship. Therefore, they provide a very large market for the books. This type of writing requires greater imagination that entails observation of the reality. Most of the romance novels will give a storyline that is not really practical in the daily life. Some readers might fail in their relationships trying to imitate whatever is written in romance novels while other might succeed bonding their union.

Female are used in most marketing strategies. The novel writing also works well with the same idea. A writer keeps in mind a female audience because it pertains to a lot of emotions and women are good at showing them. As an evergreen market, historical romance never dies.  Authors like Donna Hatch have rekindled the popularity for historical romance to a whole new generation.  Development of characters that can be easily identified by the audience is also required. The key thing here is a conflict that emerges among different characters. Also,  the main plot that a reader gets from reading the novel should not be overridden by the minor plots.

A novel writer can publish his work using two formats which includes series and singles. Series is whereby books are produced concurrently with the same novel title. After a period of time, the next episodes or story line is published in order to keep the story flowing. The other one is the singles whereby the whole romance story is published in one book. There is no need of publishing other books to end the romance. Some readers might prefer to read single novel in order to quickly know how the story ended. Other readers may choose to read series to keep them busy and always entertained. Depending on what kind of a reader you are, you will be able to choose on the category that is at your best interest. These romance novel are kept on being published thus making it easier for reader to always find a new book to read.
