Research & Writing Tips : How to Establish Romantic Tension in a Romance Novel

hi this is Laura Turner and today we’re going to be talking about how to create romantic tension in a romance novel so the most important thing for you to do first is to identify for yourself what romantic tension is I would suggest since you’re writing in Annapolis can be primarily visual you’re going to be describing the things that are happening with these people the looks that are exchanged the physical description of the people I would suggest going off and actually renting some romantic films and going through and writing down the points at which you feel the tension between the characters and that sort of that sort of spark that we always look for when we watch a romantic comedy or drama and I would write those down and take note of those moments and figure out what is going on in the moment to create this tension usually you’re going to find that the most tense moments in romances are when the two bloggers are in conflict with one another and it does not mean that you should write for example a romance novel about a husband and wife or constantly fighting that’s not something we want to see because I’m working in the world of romance and the ideal but what you can do is you can use that as a jumping-off point you can put your lovers in conflict with each other and we all know the the idea of sort of the makeup sex if you have your two lovers who are in conflict fighting with each other and then you have one really hot moment together so if we all know that sort of idea so think about moments of conflict it doesn’t necessarily have to be an out-and-out screaming fight but it can be sort of one where the woman is running away from the man or the man has to save the woman and they have already had a fight together but when they come back together and he saved her they have this tension between each other because on the one hand they’re fighting but on the other hand he just saved her life so you’ve got this conflict that results in a coming together and that’s what romantic tension really is so go out educate yourself right down ideas and figure out what is essentially what is hot to you
