Writing Romantic Comedies To Fall In Love With

Make Them Swoon is open now!

A five week course for female writers who want to write romantic comedies, or improve on their work in progress.

WEEK 1: What Is A Romantic Comedy? In the first week, you will learn what makes a romantic comedy a romantic comedy, why some work and why some don't, the elements you need to make readers & audiences swoon, with lessons on romance & comedy, and how to find a balance that works.
WEEK 2: Who Should Be In Your Story? You will learn the cast of characters that are needed to write a successful rom-com, why some tropes don't work, what is overdone, who shouldn't be there, stereotypes to avoid, what makes a strong leading lady & love interest, and character development.

WEEK 3: Story Structure & Tropes. This week is all about structuring your story beats (the structure) and romantic comedy tropes with examples so you know how to create a solid story structure that works before you start writing your story, or to use for revisions!

WEEK 4: The Promise of the Story & Happily Ever After. How a strong beginning is crucial & how to show and not tell, especially at the beginning, and happy endings that work and when they don't work.

Week 5:  Screenwriting Techniques In this week you will learn how to rock your story screenwriting style using techniques that are used in screenwriting to help you mold your rom-com into one that audiences & readers love. You will also learn how using storyboards even if you aren't an artist can help you! Don't worry it's super fun.

WEEK 6: It's Your Turn! Bringing it all together. This week we will focus on YOU and YOUR story with practical steps to build your story using story mapping, beat sheets, plotting, and character worksheets so when you finish this course you will have an outline that is ready for you to write!
