To be a successful Romance Author, You Need to Know The Genre Basics.
And it’s more than just drooling over man-titty and panty-melting sex scenes. (Although…let’s be honest, that is the best part of it.)
There are lots of books, blogs, and courses out there that can teach you how to write — hell, I even created one. But one thing that these courses — including mine — don't offer is the type of feedback you need to implement what you have learned.
And that's the foundation of The Romance Writer's Workshop.
In The Romance Writer Workshop We Will:
Learn about the tropes, themes, and conventions of the romance genre
Learn how to read like a romance writer
Structure and fine-tune your writing process, so you can finally finish writing your novel. You probably don’t have a writing process yet, but it’s cool, I’ll let you borrow mine until you develop one of your own!
Master the fundamental building blocks of every story – the scene
Progressively build tension throughout your story to keep readers turning the pages
Craft compulsively readable characters with strong motivations that readers will relate to and love
Create a compelling setting for your story — yes, even contemporary romance has world building
Structure your writing with three act plot structure and break it down into beats
Learn to write dreamy first kisses and scorching hot sex scenes
Develop a solid writing practice that you can use on other projects
Weekly Q & A’s to cover any topics or blocks you encounter
Romance Write-Ins where we spend an hour (or three) writing in sprints online with fellow writers
Establish friendships that will support you throughout your writing career!
You should become a join the Romance Writer Workshop if:
If you feel like you’re unsure of romance genre expectations and conventions
If you have your hero and heroine and some plot ideas, but you're not sure how get their story on the page.
If you're not sure how to spot a trope or how to write it.
If you have a love for writing, and reading all things romance!
Who am I and why should you listen me?
I’m Tasha L. Harrison, a romance and erotica author, freelance editor, and creative entrepreneur dedicated to helping word makers become authors.
One of the reasons why I created Romance Writers Workshop is that I remember how it felt to be an newbie author, scouring the Internet for answers to all of my romance writing related questions and piecing together what I found into something that would help me get started. I spent a lot of money and time acquiring this knowledge and I want to pay it forward by giving new and aspiring authors a head start! It’s my sincere hope that The Romance Writer Workshop becomes a place where you can improve your romance genre IQ and learn how to implement, and perfect the skills you acquire.
Are you ready to learn everything about writing compulsively readable romance novels?
