The romance, or romantic relationship between the hero and heroine is at the core of the story, although their relationship is usually consummated. In fact, it is one of the means through which the characters learn about themselves and each other. There is usually a happily ever after (HFN) or even a happy for now (HFN) ending.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
I’m a newbie writer, so my advice will be very limited. First, I think it’s important to set small goals and strive to achieve them. So let’s say you’re a blogger, you can aim for writing one blog each week, for instance, but if you actually wrote two or more, that would be even better. It also helps to volunteer to review books of or even beta read for fellow authors. We must remember, though, that all critiques must be constructive and shouldn’t be used as a means to demean other writers. Another thing worth doing is to connect with other authors, especially those who write similar genres to those you write. What’s more, I think newbies should take a few writing classes to hone their writing skills. And most importantly, they should write, write, write.
Roxy Wilson is a self-professed junkie whose excessive consumption of traditional and electronic books is legendary.
As a graduate with a degree in Education, she writes blogs which help readers to think critically about and appreciate poetry. In July, 2012, however, she decided to delve into the world of writing romance stories.
When she is not reading or writing, she spends her time cooking, listening to music and visiting the various islands of the Caribbean.What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My debut novella He’s So Into You was inspired by actual events. Four persons boarded a plane in a Caribbean island, which was bound for another, and within moments of taking off, the plane crashed. All but one person died. I was deeply moved by the events that took place. A few days after the crash, the lone survivor, said he passed out just before the impact. He suffered injuries to his leg. So I asked myself, “If this man was traveling with his fiancée, what would his story be?” And I started to brainstorm ideas, and He’s So Into You was born.
