Because I can't. It seems that I find a novel that lacks some kind of romantic aspect is rather bland, and I also find it exceptionally hard to write something that doesn't have at least a bit of romance in it. I'm trying to write a project by which there is none, because I always tend to get to caught up in the romantic aspects and forget to focus on other characters' relationships, and want a good practice at it. So to those who have read something amazing that contained no romance, do fling it my way as I want to have a good example. Any Genre but fantasy (Magic, swords, dragons, ect,) will do. And if you have any advice and have written something entirely platonic, do share advice if you have any .
