“Writing Romantic Comedies and Love Stories”

Our program for January will be the second part of a two part video presentation on “Writing Romantic Comedies and Love Stories” by Michael Hauge.

Love stories heighten both the emotional appeal and the commercial potential of your screenplay, and provide you with a powerful tool for revealing inner conflict, character growth and theme. Using the most successful romantic comedies and love stories of the last decade as examples, this DVD will reveal the essential principles for writing believable, entertaining, and emotionally fulfilling romantic relationships.

This isn’t just for writers of love stories—note the part of the paragraph above that I have underlined. These are important elements of all writing, and Hauge does a good job of explaining and giving examples.
