I'm writing a Romance Novel?
Topic: Need help writing a novel
June 26, 2019 / By Layton Question:
I've recently started writing a romance novel. I'm still quite young (i'm in high school) But I really enjoy writing and would love to make a career out of it. My story is about a teenage couple, and the struggles they have to go through during there teenagehood. Need help thinking of ideas though? Can anyone making any suggestions? Or any tips or tricks? I do intend on publishing it if I like it.
Thanks :) x

I think what you need to do is march down to a charity shop/library and search for some mills & boon books. They are the best romance novels (with various authors) ever! it should really help you write away from the stereotypical teenage romance.
I was reading mills & boon at your age because my Nan kept throwing them at me, just to warn you some are smutty good. haha
Anyway, good for you that you're writing a romance novel. But what you need to do now is make it unique and don't make your characters unrealistic and say things/think things that are unrealistic like
'I love the way the sun makes her eyes drip with gold goodness"
er no, a guy would think
'God she's so hot!' or 'hot damn!' (that's the way I think teenage boys think anyway)
Maybe a female may like to over exaggerate, because we do over exaggerate.
Maybe ask a boy what he thinks when he sees a pretty girl? i'm always asking my fiance how he see's me in his mind and all he comes out with is "you're pretty" and then returns back to his game.
Also make your characters stronger with their personalities and don't make everything about looks.
Also, because i'm a strong believer in imagination and coming up with your own ideas I can't help you in that department.
But read more, maybe even experience more? Novels take time and maybe a little research ;)

Their '3 cheers' album came out LITERALLY the year i started wearing black and was the only gothic girl in school. So listening to them helped me realize what music i liked, and gave me confidence and they also gave me courage to be whoever i wanted to be.
i was listening to 'I'm Not Ok' A LOT, especially in school. i was adopted a a baby, and teen years were hard enough for me, as i was finding out about my real relatives and meeting my mum. MCR (and other bands too, Marilyn Manson etc) came hand in hand with all those experiences, and really i do still listen to their songs because it reminds me of how life was when i was realizing how i could be comfortable i myself. ANd it turns out- i'm a lot like my mum!!
Their lyrics are powerfull, and in particular their Black Parade album pulled a lot of people up from shyness.
Think of songs like 'Cancer.' it always makes me cry.
Now their new stuff is awesome too- think of NANANANANA, it was my ringtone for ages, (now its Phantom of the opera....) But, you know all of those hard-hitting songs, either fast or slow.
Also they make a great stage show live. I saw them in london with a group of misfit friends, and its amazing.
That band really gave me a lot, if i could ever thank them in person, i would....
i'll shush now.
i think it's great your writing a book!i love to write too. i always give the story a twist though, something unexpected! maybe one of the kids can get in an accident, or one of them ends up cheating on each other. here's a few more
moving away; someone can move away, that's always dramatic
super natural; one of them could have a unspoken power
fraud; it could turn out that the girl\ guy is not who they turn out to be
tragedy; the girls house could burn down. make it the girl who gets hurt though, it adds suspense and shows if the guy loves her or not
hope this helps! and make it original!

No offense, but...you want to make a career out of this and you don't even have the creativity or imagination to come up with your own ideas/plot???

it is true that you shouldnt use anyone else's ideas, but if you ever have any trouble thinking up an idea, just talk a walk in the park or if you have woods nearby to clear your mind and let it wander.

dont take anyone's ideas. write your own. that way your creativity will flow out at its best. write about what interests you.

Do it on how MCR promotes life and how they are against self harm and suicide- that way you can get facts such as them having the suicide hotline number at their concerts and them saying that they are against self harm plus there's alot of people out there that will say MCR has helped them and there's a book on MCR:
also I'm sure you could take quotes from Life On The Murder Scene
