If you are a lover of the romance genre and writing your own (or planning to!) then here are some tips to make sure your romance novel has the elements readers seek. You’re lucky in that you’ll be writing in the most popular genre (crime and mystery are second in popularity) with an abundance of imprints and publishers looking to snap up your latest story. Romance is also one of the few genres where you can build a financially viable self-publishing career on your own.
All advice for writers says to set a schedule and stick to it. Yet I’m not sure that works for everyone. It doesn’t work so well for me. I tend to write as inspiration flows and it rarely shows up on a schedule. Time management may be a virtue but I’m not sure that is even what I should be managing as a creative soul.
