Get Motivated: The Power of Love in Fiction Writing | #amwriting

Sunday, March 18, 2018

Romance is fantasy, and like all genre fiction, it reflects the world as we would like to see it, with crime punished, justice triumphant, goodness rewarded, and love conquering all. Characters are larger than life, with stronger passions, blacker faults, and brighter virtues. . . .

As with all fantasy, even the most outrageous premise can work if it is developed in a logical fashion, with convincing details.

~Mary Jo Putney
From the essay “Welcome to the Dark Side” in
Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women
