I’ve written romance, but only ever as a subplot. I’ve always wondered how there can be books that are 300+ pages with a main plot of romance and are basically realistic fiction and don’t even have subplots of scifi or mystery or something. I’m really admirable of writers who can do that.

Anyway, I think this post about covers what I know about writing romance. For general asks about romance like this one, I’ll probably refer people to this post until I gain any new insight or my thoughts change.

Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

People actually expect me to believe that if you throw a group of only one sex inside a fucking maze with no memories, no social, cultural or religious discourses forced upon them, no outside influences of any kind for years and years with only each other to grow close too, trust, survive with, protect, build with, bond with etc. 

That eVERY SINGLE ONE WOULD END UP STRAIGHT??????!??!!

- Renesmee’s Story -

“After running into some trouble, I decided it was finally time I returned home. Nahuel decided to accompany me, his aunt stayed behind. 

Seeing my home filled me with relief. It was good to be back but I know nothing will be the same now. Everything from here out will change and I can only hope for the best outcome. 

Thinking about talking with my parents, seeing Jacob again, and how he’s going to react with Nahuel here, fills me with anxiety. More anxiety than what I witnessed and what may come from that.”

What Writers Should Be Reading

Good writers are good readers. I say this all the time, though often I feel it’s a piece of advice that gets overlooked or glossed over, whether it just is a little too vague or time-consuming (reading is so time-consuming!) that many new writers don’t understand - this as the most important piece of advice I could ever offer.

BOOKS I READ IN 2016To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Every secret thought, every careful observation, everything I’ve saved up inside me, I put it all in the letter. When I’m done, I seal it, I address it, and then I put it in my teal hatbox.
