Welcome, fabulous romance writer!

Thanks to the work you did in the prerequisite course, Story Fundamentals #1: The Basics, your story has a strong foundation. Now, in Story Fundamentals #2: The Framework, the second course in this three-part series, you will further develop your story concept by building a sturdy and robust framework on which to construct the plot.

Story Fundamentals #2: The Framework is a self-paced course that will give you insight into the all-important elements every romance novel needs — romantic conflict, an emotional connection, and an HEA (happily-ever-after). Plus, you’ll delve deeper with subplots that enhance the story and tie everything together, and work out where your story needs to begin and where it will end.

How it works:

Work through the modules at your own pace and complete the tasks as directed in the workbooks provided.

At two points in the course, you will be given the opportunity to submit your completed workbooks for personalised feedback on the work you’ve completed, as well as a chance to debrief after each round of feedback. If you’re looking for guidance from a romance story expert, this is an opportunity you don’t want to pass up.

Once you’ve completed the course you will have developed a strong and meaningful framework on which to begin constructing your story’s plot.


In Story Fundamentals #2: The Framework you will:

  • craft an inciting incident that kickstarts the story;
  • build believable conflict that challenges the characters;
  • explore how the central romance will develop and allow the characters to find love;
  • objectively critique your ideas for plot events;
  • formulate meaningful subplots;
  • identify your story’s opening and closing scenes.
