Know how to write dialogue but not straight out detail? Well you're in the right place. 

This is a work in progress. Hope it helps!

I would put swearing in my books, but my mom reads them, so I can't :(

This was really good advice but I'm sad now because I've always found dialogue to be easier than describing things.

@wanderkin I read somewhere that when we dream, write stories, and create things, we subconsciously make our works into something that we wish were real(a personal utopia of some type). So don't feel bad if you're making things perfect. :)

Thank you for writing this because it has helped me a lot to move from trying to make everything perfect to making things that happen in my stories seem more realistic

wow this is great, really helps! And that's true, in many of the romances I read, it's just the plain old love-at-first-sight thing. They don't get that life's not always perfect
