Forum: Writing M/M Romance presented by A. Cathering Noon

February 7-28

Writing M/M Romance presented by A. Cathering Noon

When "what he said" isn't enough

Writing M/M romance, or "male/male" romance, came about in the late 1960's (probably much earlier, but that's when folks admit to it), written largely by and for women. It has its roots in the fan communities and stories were mimeographed (anybody remember those?) to be passed around at conventions or mailed (yes, snail mail) back and forth.

And then came the internet.

Now, with the explosion of ebooks and the ease of sharing stories via forums and archives, the genre has come into its own. There are now more and more original stories with two male characters who meet, have conflicts, and fall in love. And yes, there's the sex.

We'll talk about how to write convincing male characters and how to handle pronoun confusion. We'll touch on some elements of erotic writing and how to make scenes as hot, or as sweet, as one wishes.

Most of all, we'll have fun. Join me for some discussion and, most of all, some writing.
