Writing Romance 101––Part III

I’m not sure what happened to Part II, but we’re going to craft a heroine – the most important character in a romance.

Crafting the Heroine. The heroine is the key to any romance. Yes, we women also want a great guy for her to end up with, and we’ll talk about crafting him, too, at a later date. The romantic heroine is the reader’s alter ego. She controls everything the reader feels. Click to Tweet #amwriting #writingromance101 #craftingtheheroine

March Winds — Part II

“Lord, I want an opportunity, and I want it now! This week!” My desperate prayer seemed to bounce off the ceiling. But within a day or so, God answered my prayer in a powerful way.

It can be like a running dialogue, or just a word or two with the instruction of “write this down.” So, I grab my journal, pick up a pen, and write.  #GodsSpecialEffects #SpiritualGifts #SuperBowl2018
