Phew : that was a toughie! I am just emerging from a 2-hour writing session and I’m emotionally wrung out. Romantic fiction might be a light read but it is far from a light write :).
I’m not only learning that writing brings emotions to the surface (and that those emotions can be used to move a story forward), I’m also learning that to write romantic fiction, you have to fall in love with your own fictional characters. And when you fall in love with them, you care what happens to them.
I am just going outside and may be some time.
