Once you have your characters and a dynamic plot, you'll want to choose a setting that will make your story come alive. But be forewarned: to please a romance reader, you'll need to pay strict attention to the details of your fictional world. That means you'll need to research your setting and write about it convincingly, whether it's small-town America or the Elizabethan court. Most of all, you'll want to make every word used to describe your setting count. Luckily, it won't be as hard to accomplish as you think.
