Are we moving on to the main topic. Yes say the question is do you books. Follow a formula if say does it help where hindu that was. The original question that came in from a reader. I cannot remember your name. Sorry but it was such a great question that we started to make a whole of it as our main question. So i think we said this before. The old true romance is must fully some kind of formula because if they don't then not romance books simplest that really But you can write what you like around the formula so they can seem unfamiliar even. There's a formula in there. He peel off the layers. Say the challenge for you is to make it. Seem like they're not written formula even though they'll yep A couple of years ago ran mcleod. And ira et a writer's conference camera which one and an author speaking at the event who was not a romance writers a she wrote mysteries or thrillers. I can't remember what she was saying that she was really jealous of her friend. Who was a romance writer because All her friend had to do was slapped. Some stuffing and story was already there. Because like it's so easy to write romance rumors. And i looked at each other and we dislike courts naira like. Why is it hard for us. Men like like all his slaps mr bid. And that's it. Because i think everyone thinks about someone else's jonah like. Oh gosh alicia. Real data easier. They answer for me is do my book. Swallow formula Yes and no. 'cause i write books like lizzie. Series are just published a book eight owen trapped in yes. Each kind of follows a formula but since his continuation of lizzie is life in his toll. True her pov. It's a much different kind of formula. Like i still have to hit different marks in each installment because each book has to have like a four story arc. So i'd have to hit that but we also have to hit points on the overarching art. So it's a bit. The formula isn't as obvious as in some of my standalone. But it still there that makes sense. Yeah definitely does i. As that does hold true for any series books. Say every stunt lame book espec- in romance until talking raymond's every book in romance. We'll have a formula. Would i every genre book has a formula. Say it's not just romance thrillers. Mysteries cozy mysteries in horror at any of them will always have so six seven points that you need to hit to get your story and you have to have those on the page and if you don't have them then you'll books not probably not as likely to be very well because it's what readers expect. Yeah all readers still wanna hear that books have a formula but if we broke the formula readers when it finally look of sci-fi especially if you are a reader genre that this is like your favorite toner. You're expecting certain beats to be hit. Even though if you're not really aware of your expecting you know for the The meat cute on the fall in love what we call the black moment in like the fighting for love kind of thing this to be happening and if we kind of skip some of those i mean we can change it. It doesn't have to exactly internet definition. We could change it but if you don't hit them people like well just still think it hits the mark in like you get the reviews it said something lacking here. Yes and usually readers danquah name. What is because why would you. But it's normally that that the actual things that you need on the page and not there and say you feel just a bit bereft bit cheated of the story. That should have been so in romance. You can find environmental books on this specific scenes that you have to have in the book and as tb. santino chico them slightly different things to wa. I'm going to call them but there will. It's it's basically all the same thing so i've got obligatory scenes. Cool them The meeting the confession of love the first case the break-up the preface love and the lovers reunite and climax knowing that way everyone. Well it could be you. Don't take makeup six hundred.
