Writing Down the Bones: Story Construction and Evaluation The Romance Novel

Oh! I found another great handout. It's another long one that I'll break into bite-sized blogs for easier digestion. This one is by Janice Bennett for a program she did called Writing the Popular Novel.

Her outline is broken down into a lot of good points. The first one is before you start to write that novel.

A.) The premise:  (remember this is for romances) Does the premise focus on a character trait of your hero or heroine and does it strengthen or weaken as it interacts with the conflict of your story?

I love this question. It is one that can help you get your plot developed when you find the plot weak.

The next section covers the hero and heroine profile - which I will cover next week.
