What’s funnier that romance? Or sex? (Please don’t tell my dh ever said that.) But let’s face it (or not) the entire situation would be laughable if our chemicals and emotions didn’t fool us into taking it so deadly serious.
Ever wondered if the universe gave us romance as an April Fool’s prank? Think about the anticipation and longing, the excitement and the letdown, the pain and the utter madness. Romance makes sane people crazy and crazy people crazier. Who even needs a special day?
Seriously, I believe comic romance in all genres will become more popular during these uncertain economic times. The dark, though exciting and a great escape, may pale in comparison to a genuine chuckle and laugh out loud fun.
So how do I control my tendency to laugh while writing romance? Not well. I tried hard in my paranormal Romancing Rebecca http://tinyurl.com/romreb and all the subplots came out funny. Romance writers? They’re a hoot. Sedona? I love the place, but it’s a parody of the new New Age. The sex? It slipped right over into silly.
