Love

Everyone loves a love story. But this apparently simple tale may be the most difficult form to write well. Love is the only genre where you need not one, but two equally well-defined main characters. It has a plot where surprise must come out of intimacy. And it has a story that should naturally take only ten minutes. But you have to fill two hours and make the audience not only see the love but feel it, want it, demand that it happen. If that isn't hard enough, your characters must want it, but be afraid of it as well.

The LOVE STORY COURSE explains in detail how the subtle choreography of a true love story works, from the essential story beats to love's many story forms, from love scenes and dialogue to how to write an enduring love story. Perhaps the most complex of all genres, the love story is as varied as Pretty Woman, The Titanic, and Four Weddings and a Funeral. If love is your message, this course will show you how to send it in the most appealing way possible.
