Me Write a Romance? #ROW80

What can be so hard about writing a romance?

Girl likes boy, boy likes girl they both go to the dance together, happy ending and all – end of story.

I don’t think so…

I need plots and lots of conflict in my stories.

So what happens in our high schools today? I just hope I won’t be too far out of touch with my readers on this topic.

My first book sort of covered hazing, the second book dealt with runaways and drug addiction. What kind of stuff can I come up with for the next book, “Along came Neil”?

Things can’t be that different than it was when I was growing up except for the internet and cellphones. Ooow… now there’s an idea, I can try and tackle the issues of the cyber age.

We have Facebook and cellphones and lots of goodies to get these kids into hot water.

Speaking of hot water, it is time to start cooking this plot.

Karla and Maggie can take their battle into cyber space besides the one they are having in school. But in the end, the romance has to happen, it just has to.
