How to Build and Break Tension in Romantic Scenes
A professor once shared with instructor Denise Williams the idea that great things in life--great food, great stories, great music--all require tension and release. Romantic scenes in novels are no different--the sweetest and sexiest of moments are made all the better by effectively building and breaking tension. In this OnDemand Webinar, Denise discusses strategies for using tension to make romantic scenes more engaging and effective in moving the plot of your story forward, all while drawing in your reader.
Denise Williams wrote her first book in the 2nd grade. I Hate You and its sequel, I Still Hate You, featured a tough, funny heroine, a quirky hero, witty banter, and a dragon. Minus the dragons, these are still the books she likes to write. After penning those early works, she finished second grade and eventually earned a PhD. After growing up a military brat around the world and across the country, Denise now lives in Iowa with her husband, son, and two ornery shih-tzus who think they own the house. How to Fail at Flirting was her debut novel and she can usually be found reading, writing, or thinking about love stories.
