A book without any relationships would be seriously lacking in conflict. Which means you don’t have much of a story.

It doesn’t matter what genre you write, the relationships between your characters will drive the plot forwards, add depth to other characters, and create conflict.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why all relationships have consequences
  • How to write LGBTQ+ relationships
  • Mistakes writers make when writing relationships
  • How to make sure relationships feel three-dimensional to readers
