What makes a couple live happily ever after? What in their story makes you believe that they’ll survive the long haul? Read Elizabeth’s post over at 8 Ladies Writing.
Recently I’ve been working on the contemporary romance story I drafted during November’s NaNo writing blitz. One of the areas that I’m struggling with is making my hero and heroine’s happily-ever-after believable. I need both my characters and their relationship to grow and develop enough so that there is no doubt that they will be together long after the book is closed and put back on the shelf.

It’s not a trivial question.
