Writing Love without Experience
Anonymous asked: “I started a story about love, but the problem is that I have no romantic experience whatsoever. Because of that, it has come to my attention that the romantic scenes are stiff and seem out of place. Any advice?”
I don’t think you need experience to write about something, especially if it’s romance or something so incredibly prevalent across the board in art, media, and storytelling. We have grown up on love stories to the point where it is almost obnoxious. I personally love them, but if I didn’t, I imagine it would be pretty relentless. Anyway, with so many examples out there, personal experience is overrated.
