Romantic Comedies

on October 27, 2010

Jill Corcoran of the Herman Literary Agency is looking for Romantic Comedies for teens.

So, what exactly IS a romantic comedy and how to do you write one?

Michael Hauge explains Romantic Comedies in this article.

I think one of the hardest things to do is write humor. In his article, “Writing Romantic Comedies,” Michael explains, “The humor arises from the way the heroes OVERREACT to their situation. They devise fantastic plots, pose as women, adopt false identities, juggle tow lovers simultaneously, tell enormous lies, fly across the country to meet a voice on a radio, etc…..The driving motivations in romantic comedies actually grow out of intense pain and loss.
