I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather these past couple of days. Nothing is majorly wrong, I’ve just got a bit of a virus and it’s making me feel low.
The upside of that is although I haven’t felt well enough to do strenuous things, I have felt up to doing some work on Reunion of the Heart, my WIP. I told you here that I’ve had it back from my beta readers, who were all fabulous BTW. My mum has offered to proof read it for me when I’m done, which is great as she’ll do it for FREE!! (And I know she’ll be amazing at it!)
At the moment I’m going through it, alternating between changing minor words or paragraphs that my betas have flagged up, and changing parts, even rewriting them. It’s a lot of work but it’s going so well! I mean there’s a lot to do, but I’m loving just getting back to writing after my false start with the job that didn’t work out for me.
There is something with regards to this story that I’m in two minds about. It’s how much romance during the story I should have between the two main protagonists, and how much I should leave till the end, especially as there’s a third party involved – it’s a bit of a love triangle!
Now I must say that this is a bit of a rhetorical question. At this stage, having had the novel back from the beta readers, I don’t really want too many more opinions saying ‘do this, don’t do that’. In a way I’ve kind of gone past that stage.
But I’m still interested to hear, from those of you who write romances, how much romance you have between the hero and heroine in your love story before their tale is resolved at the end?
Thanks as always for your comments. They’re much appreciated. 🙂
