Do you write romantic relationships? How do you do with those, and how “far” are you willing to go in your writing?
Despite my dislike of reading romantic stories, I do write romantic relationships. Why? Because my characters have them. They’re dedicated spouses, nefarious playboys, naive youths. They may not all be romantically involved, but that’s life.
My romantic relationships are rarely intrinsic to the plot. My characters have relationships, their significant others may play a part in the plot, but rarely (if ever) does a story revolve solely around the romance. That would just bore me to write.
And I’m a definite ‘fade to black’ sort of person.
