Need ideas for a romantic story!


#1

I really want to write a romantic story but don’t know where to begin!
Drop your ideas below!


#2

SO! As an author, to stay inspired I find it best to write what you like! What kind of Romance stories do you like? We can start there.


#3

Ayy that is good advice, I’d like to get in on this, I’d be happy to help out with shaping a romance story!!


#4

Do you like
-adult love stories (note book kinda feel)
-new puppy love (teenage/highschool love stories)
-unconventional love stories(quirky main characters/on the typical MC and Love interest you usually see. Basically anything love move with Kristin steward in it ahahah )


#5

I love romance stories that come unexpectedly usually or ones that come from hard/unexpected circumstances


#6

More so adult love stories


#7

Perfect! Okay so what kind of circumstance is difficult to you? And is this more of a sweet romance story or a rip your heart out kind ahaha


#8

I definitely think characterisation is… not more important because characterisation is always important, but harder with that kind of romance. You’re probably looking at more unique characters, who will have a more detailed backstory. I’d say start there?¿


#9

As in, a pregnancy from a one night stand…or something a little less cliché than that if you catch my drift


#10

YES! That was going to be my next thing.

Characters, when we’ll developed, write the story themselves.


#11

@CordeliaM Thank you! I usually find starting with characters helpful too


#12

Ah haha glad we’re all on the same track! @Sweet_Stories is really offering up some good advice here so imma take my lead from there :joy:


#13

So you Want to take the less cliché road, let’s think outside the box,

What are things that force people to see each other repeatedly?

-getting into a fender bender
-working together


#14

I guess… how would your romance take off from here then? What is your MC’s mindset at the beginning of the story? How does the LI alter that?


#15

Omg or like… AA meetings


#16

Or rehab?!


#17

@CordeliaM I love the way you think girl!!


#18

That might be a little risqué for Episode but you catch my drift


#19

No it’s not! Depending on the kind of rehab!


#20

Do either of you guys maybe want to work together on this story? I feel like we could develop it well together!
