I'm about to take a much needed break from moving and remodeling to read several romance novels. This is for two reasons:
1. I'm about to write my first straight up romance novella with a group of fantastic writers for a collection. This is research of a sort.
2. Romance often doesn't require a lot of thought. There's nothing wrong with that. People read romance because it has a certain level of predictability. The "happily ever after" being the most important part of that.
So, hold onto your hats, here we go!
