The Kissy Bits #16 - The heroine
Show Sixteen – the heroic heroine
Why have I been holding out on the heroine? Cause heroines are that much harder.
“Just shut up and give me more page time with wonder boy here!”
When you ask people to describe their heroines, they’ll often give you a physical rundown.
The ingredients that separate a true heroine from just a mediocre one are based on what's inside of her.
First, a romantic heroine must CONNECT.
Second, a romantic heroine must have STRENGTH.
Third, a romantic heroine must DESERVE YOUR HERO.
A heroine embodies all our hopes and dreams of a perfect love.
The SPUNKY KID.
The FREE SPIRIT.
Think of your favourite heroines of all times.
The next few episodes are going to be a lot different to what we’ve had so far. It’s conference season for romance writers everywhere, and as I’ve said, I’ll be heading to the Romance Writers of Australia conference at the Gold Coast.
If you’ve got anything you want to know about the conference, about the writing journey, about romance in writing, you know how to reach me!
If you’ll be on the gold coast for the conference, drop me a line and we can get together for a chat. I promise I’ll be nice to you.
