3 tips on adding romance to your novel

I am not comfortable with the thought of any of my family members reading about romance in my writing. Unfortunately for me the two main characters of the story I’m writing seem to be flirting behind my back.
Although I’m still trying to stop this it made me realize that at some point romance will have to be a part of my story’s.
So here is 3 short tips on adding romance to your story.

1. Romance doesn’t just come from nowhere, make sure it develops smoothly so that kissing scene doesn’t throw your reader out of the story.

2.  Intimate moments isn’t just about what they’re doing, add what they feel beneath their fingers, what they smell, what they hear and so on.

3. Girls like guys who make them laugh. Make your couple funny when their together.

Writing prompt: your day.

Pick a moment out of your day any moment and rewrite it in first person.
Where you in an argument? where you laughing at dinosaur jokes with your friend? where you writing a test? What ever you were doing today pick the most outstanding moment and write about it in as much detail as possible.

3 days of nano

Since NaNoWriMo started I have been writing as much as possible between the normal weekend stuff.
I find the writing easy but the sitting down to write is hard.
Those first words that start a scene does not come easy and since my story was planned to be shorter than 50000 words I had to change the spacing of the major plot moving events and add scenes.
My mum just asked me what is driving me to keep writing since I’m not known for finishing things.
To tell you the truth I don’t know what’s driving me,  it might simply be because it’s fun or maby it’s because I grew attached to my characters and feel the need see this through for them. What ever is driving me it’s doing a very good job at it, I just reached 6732 words.
So now that I am done bragging about that here is my advice to you if your writing something and finding yourself stuck.
Sit down and write, at first it might be painful but your muse will come you just have to show it your willing to write.

4 things your novel must have before flashbacks.

I am putting flashbacks in the novel I’m currently writing. So of coarse I went and did some research on it so here is the 4 things your novel must have before you start with flash backs.

1. A bond between the reader and the character.
2. A goal your character is working towards.
3. Something standing in your characters way of completing their goal.
4. Your story must make readers curios to know what happened in the passed.

Writing prompt :And defend

Write a scene were one character is forcing another into a fight but the other character refuses.
Why does the one want to fight?
Why does the other not want to fight?

Violence in writing

You might have a fight planned for your story but it’s not going to mean anything if it belongs to a simple hay let’s fight scene.
Fights in your story has to have something that led to it, your character must have motivation to fight.
Even if your character is a big brute who makes a living out of fighting he still needs a reason to do it.
Reasons why people fight include anger, pride, money, and so on.

Remember fight = violence, which needs motivation
