A to Z Challenge – G (AC)

A to Z Challenge

For the challenge, I’m focusing on the A to Z of reading and writing romance novels. This series of posts will contain Adult Content. So, if you’re really young or don’t enjoy dirty things, just don’t read it. No harm, no foul. Otherwise…enjoy. 🙂

imageG is for Girl Friends

G is for Girl Friends and the importance of female friends for our romance novel heroine.

Depending on the story, girl friends can give us comic relief, smirk at the heroine’s dealings with the hero, have deep conversations that fill us in on back-stories or help our heroine realize obvious truths, hold side kick status for all kinds of adventures, and take us on interesting side stories (including their own romances) in the novel.

…And the heroine’s girl friends (if they’re interesting enough and if the author is so inclined) can open the door to sequels.  So, the next time you come across a scene with the heroine and her girl friend – don’t skip over it.  Grab a glass of wine and toast that secondary character and unsung heroine.  🙂

  1. missing the AC here. I don’t write romances as such. But my wip is I think. She doesn’t have a girl friend for those kind of chats but a male friend – the boy friend’s best friend. And no, there’s no danger of the relationship going further


    1. Yeah, alas no AC in this post.

      And you’re right, you can also have a male friend in a similar role – which is pretty refreshing, as most novels stick a girl in that role. But whether it’s a guy or a girl, the heroine (or hero) always needs someone to bounce their thoughts off of.
