I’m always looking for ways to improve my writing and give readers what they want. The survey below is the what several readers say they want in a romance nove.
[And the survey says]
Backstory-Understandable. It’s hard to write a story without it.
Banter-Not too much or character will start sounding like bickering children.
Uncomfortable moments– This is fine scene to write for young adult love scene but most full grown people do not have very uncomfortable moments.
Sex scenes that are more about the emotions not so much the mechanics of sex.-This is fine, it depends on the story, situation and many different elements.
The slow burn. -This is fine, it depends on the story, situation and many different elements. It doesn’t work well for every story.
No insta-love please.– Again, this is fine, it depends on the story, situation and many different elements.
Attraction, yes-Its hard to have a romance without attraction.
Love, no. No???
The “no” regarding love confused me. How can you have a romance without love. Without love then the sex is meaningless. It maybe physically satisfying but it will never be emotional satisfying.
