Sample text:

Romance is at once the simplest and most complex genre to write. Two people meet, fall in love or lust, overcome obstacles to their attraction, and ride off in the sunset either happily-ever-after or happy-for-now. Mix in some lovey-dovey scenes, heartfelt emotions, and sweet romantic lines, and you’re set. Or are you?

A romance has one main storyline that revolves around the couple’s emotions and feelings for each other. The central story question is, “will these two who are initially attracted to each other find love or not?”

The romance has a canned answer which is always “YES.” It is like a game that the writer and reader play. Both know the answer is “yes,” but the fun is getting to this “yes.”

Romance is primarily an emotional experience for the reader, the writer, and the characters. Everyone must feel the roller coaster of emotions from the initial meeting to the final kiss. A romance is not simply a narrative of events, but a series of situations evoking highly emotional responses. If your reader is not intimately involved with the growing love affair of your hero and heroine, you don’t have a romance. Your reader must feel the attraction, despair at the fights, laugh along at the cute moments, pant in the love scenes, and swoon at the ending. Okay, so maybe I exaggerate. All I know is you, as the writer, must feel the romance and the love and give your reader a chance to participate.

This intimate participation is what makes romance the hardest genre to write well.
