    I am writting my first novel (first anything). I struggle to think what genere it fits. Is as much about heartbreak, maturing, self forgiveness and second chances under a new light as it’s about romance. And then there is a sci-fi element to the twist.

    Please talk about lit fic or coming of age novels. Ones that span decades! That’s basically all I read and I really want to write one!

    I wrote a Romance short story to explore whether or not I liked writing the genre. I couldn't imagine writing a Romance novel, at this point. But I like Romance and Women's Fiction, as a reader.

    I'm planning to write something that seems like a romance novel. I feel like everything I write doesnt fall clearly into a cliché genre title. It's like I'm writing on a shard of glass between topics.

    Hi, good afternoon. I’ve learnt so much from this video. Thanks to Shaylene and the Reedsy team for making this. It’s very enjoyable and useful to beginners like me. Btw, I’m going to start writing my romance novel later on, wish me luck!!

    I’ve written 5 romcoms. I’d read a couple, and watched hundreds. But I didn’t know the rules. So they, though funny and sexy, don’t have the desired romantic punch needed. One is so bad I’ve unpublished it. And my first is so terrible I can’t stand to even try to rewrite it. But, between immersing myself in videos like this, and reading and rereading Romancing the Beat, I’m going to try and get it right with my new novel. So yes, knowing the rules before writing a romance novel is far superior to going in blind and maybe/probably not hitting these beats by accident.

    i'm hoping you can tell me what I need. i can't write like that. part by part. no. it does not work like that for me. to me it's as if I'm watching a movie and taking dictation. NO. I'm not watching movies and re doing them… NO it's all my own work. what I'm coming to you is for. how much sex do you want in it? I've heard that men do not know how to write those segments. trust when I say it's nothing to me. i can do it really easy. i wrote a book before and a few people have bought it. yes I write romance. a lot of people really like it. how many pages should I make it? my last book was about roughly around 300 pages. and for now. i have to find an editor and a publishing company. also. let me ask you this… romance novels do they WANT horror segments in it? i can keep it out . but I just want to know. yes I have to work on my punctuation. but those are the main things I want to know. if you can reply that would be great. thank you for your time.

    I'm writing (actually, self-editing at this point) 2-3 contemporary romance novellas with M/M couples, and I'm still confused if LGBTQ is a niche in the contemporary romance sub-genre or if it's a genre in itself and the "contemporary romance" part is the sub-genre.

    I have been struggling with writing a good multi-chapter story, mostly on ending the chapter. Any tips on what I should do? I really want to write this idea I have in mind but I'm struggling a lot.

    "Say, the main character moves to a new town and don't have a job and the love interest owns a bookstore and so they give them a job in their bookstore."

    Me: laughs nervously and hides the drafts of my novel where an accomplished musician goes to a countryside to escape his trauma and meets a bookstore owner who happens to be his future love interest.
