blacktarzy asked; Im stuck in my story because I need to write a coupple of weeks with nice and romantic things happening, and “fluff” isnt really my best side. Do you have any guide I could seek or any advice? Because this really is getting pathetic as I could only come up with 154 words in 3 months

A large part of your problem probably lies in your word choice. Don’t think of it as fluff, because then it will feel fake and you will be less involved in writing it. If you approach romantic language and action as expressions of human emotion, which they are, then it becomes just like writing anything else: get up in your characters’ heads and hearts, find out what makes them who they are and why they do what they do, and put it on paper. Make every word count.

In other news, this post has tons of exciting resources that you can use to work on your wooing.

Thanks for your question! If you have a comment, concern, quip, query, or question about this post or writing in general, or you just want to say hi, use our ask box!
