It’s All About the Emotion
Writing emotion is one of the most important elements to telling a story, but particularly in popular genre fiction. Whatever the genre, they have one thing in common and that is that if we want our readers emotionally invested in our books, they need to *feel* the story. Emotion is layered into the conflict, reflected in the characterization and key to creating a compelling plot. Lucy Monroe will host an interactive discussion and short writing exercise to hone that all important skill: getting emotion down on paper.
With more than 7 million copies of her books in print worldwide, award winning and USA Today bestseller Lucy Monroe has published over 70 books and had her stories translated for sale all over the world. While she writes multiple subgenres of romance, all of her books are sexy, deeply emotional and adhere to the concept that love will conquer all. A passionate devotee of romance, she adores sharing her love for the genre with her readers.
