Not Your Grandmother’s Bodice Ripper: Exploring the Stages of Intimacy in a Romantic Arc through Plot Structure and Characterization

“Romantic tension is more about how the characters feel about slots and insertions, than the physical slots and insertions” Tessa Dare, New York Times and USA Today bestselling historical romance novelist

We will begin by delineating the different categories within the women’s fiction genre and establish the differences between a romance novel and mainstream fiction with a central romance.

This craft lecture will also explore the unique plot structure, pacing, and characterization that define each of the categories. Along the way, we will take a practical look at the beats needed to build a romantic arc and how these stages are key to escalating romantic tension, not only in women’s fiction, but any genre.
