Have you ever read a romance and reach the traditional 60-80% complete section and think, "That's it? That's what's going to keep these main characters apart?" I think we all have. The central theme in romance is, of course, love and reaching the Happy Ever After or Happy For Now. But the process to get there should be enough to leave your reader satisfied. If you have trouble coming up with roadblocks to shove in front of your characters, this is the workshop for you!

We'll discuss:

Do you really need a black moment?
What exactly IS a black moment, anyway?
How long should the black moment last?
Things you can use to create a black moment
Can I fix my supposedly "black" moment if it's reading more like a gray moment?
How should I plot to come out of the black moment?

This workshop is geared toward both beginning and advanced writers.
