Published since 2009, over the years I've accumulated various items of writing wisdom. The Third Tuesday Writing Tidbit showcases these items in no particular order. Click here to see all 3T Tidbits.
Romance offers opportunities and challenges not found in other genres because you're always dealing with at least two major protagonists (hero/heroine). Each must have their own NEED and WANT and therefore their own character arc.
Get extra resonance by integrating H1's and H2's arcs.
Example: When H1 solves her problem it gives H2 insight into his own problem.
Example: H2 tries to cure his own weakness in H1 (H2 can see his own issues more clearly seeing H1 wrestle with/act on the same thing).
