Have you ever written a love story? Especially based on your own experience? I want to know what was the state of your mind while writing it?
I am writing a love thriller novel based on the true incidents in my own life. I am enjoying the writing and actually living in the past days while writing it.
Please share your experience.
For whatever reason it is very easy for me to write love stories. I would prefer for other stories to come more naturally so that I could be perceived as an intellectual or at least having something of value to offer, but romance seems to be the thing that just flows. I don't prefer the mind set it puts me in. Again, I would prefer the mind of an intellectual giant. I don't really see that happening... (as my fellow brainiac Taylor Swift says,) "...like ever."
I have written many romances in the past but I find that as I develop as a writer I tend to mix the romance with suspense and mystery. I also love paranormal and historical romances.
Writing straight romance doesn't appeal to me anymore. I am currently working on a romance novella for a client and the truth is, I find it quite boring. The novel I just completed for another client involves lots of romance but is really a crime thriller suspense. I will be doing book two and three. I also just completed book one of a romance trilogy for a client and that had some mystery.
A straight love story? No, I find them boring. I don't even read romances unless the romance is incidental to the adventure. I think there are too many other good writers who can write the love stories better than I can for those who like to read them. I will say that my own courtship with Mr. B was a little unusual, so a may do a hub or a short story based on it someday. It will be a very short story because that only lasted six weeks.
I've written quite a few, but not intentionally. I try to write a good story, and love is sometimes just a natural part of a story. I also try to keep it real. Most men and women are not the images of perfection portrayed in romance novels. They're just ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances in a worthwhile story, so I try to keep them that way.
I once wrote a short story about a post-apocalyptic wasteland brought about by an aging star replacing the sun via a wormhole from the point-of-view of a prostitute. Does that count?

Have you ever written a hub and decided not to publish it?The hub is written, you've gathered the pictures and appropriate links, but something is just off about it. Have you ever decided not to publish a finished (or near finished) article? If so, why?
