Last week the website Write It Sideways published a blog I submitted. Check out: Creating Chemistry: Bringing Love Relationship to Life.
If you’re a romance writer, you want the relationship between your two main characters to sizzle. You’re in the business of creating chemistry. More precisely, you’re an alchemist.
In other words, there is no sure-fire formula that will create great chemistry. If you do succeed in producing relationship gold, you’ve produced alchemical magic.
But, still, I had to say something on the subject. To whet your appetite for my approach, I will list my five tips.
One. Name It
Two. Know Your Story
Three. Tune Into the Dialogue
Four: Find the Humor
Five: Let Go
But I won’t describe them. Instead I’ll tell you a bit about Write It Sideways in order to inspire you to pay a visit. So you can read my tips there.

As they say, their mission is to help “you see the world of writing from a fresh perspective. Our experienced team can help you learn new skills, define your goals, increase your productivity and publish your work. Plus, we’ll try really hard not to be boring when we do it.”
Yes, to trying really hard not to be boring. And I am delighted this site has included my article in their collection!
