How to write a romantic novel
As one of the most popular genres within fiction, romance novels often provide the inspiration for many people to follow their dreams of writing and begin the creative process. For anyone new to writing and indeed new to this particular niche it is advisable to learn the key components of what makes a successful work and how to write a romance novel.

The secret to getting to first base is adhering to structure and form. Whilst the romantic notions essential to this genre are important, the less glamorous elements provide the frame upon which you can stretch the canvas of your romance novel.

Consider structure. There has to be a beginning, a middle and an end. Obvious. But there also needs to be character transformation. There needs to be a tempo to the story – enough to get the heart racing, but also opportunities for the reader to get their breath back. Generally readers need to be comforted that the story is proceeding along reasonably conventional lines, so that they can let their imagination run free over the characters themselves and some of the intimate moments. If you are new to writing our novel writing software can help – please see our ‘Overview’ page for more details.’

Characters. Some might say this factor is of the highest importance when discussing how to write a romance novel. Who can forget the dashing Mr. Darcy or the star crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet with their determination not to submit to their parent’s rules. It is the color of the character that might be considered more important than their depth. But there is always a back story that needs to be slowly released, that goes some way to explaining behavioural oddities.

Then with these points in mind we can now move onto the features more specific to the genre, rather than novel writing in general, which can spice up your writing (our software program can help you with all of this).

Flirting – a brief exchange, a chance meeting, the introduction of the love interest, however this is done it adds real excitement to your work. Some witty banter or choice words can set up later scenes and keep the reader guessing as to later developments.

Falling in love – when, where and why. Is it love at first sight or does this develop – how so. There are various ways this can happen but one of the most important points to note on how to write a romance novel is this development should be a play on the readers’ emotions and in a manner that they can relate to (i.e. imagine themselves in a similar situation).

Within all the steps for romance writing, it is important that notes are made on various key story events, characters and developed and that your creative ideas for scenes and situations are noted down and not lost. This amongst others, is one of the prime areas where NewNovelist Novel writing software can help.
