Hello! Very much a newbie here. I was assigned a Romance Comedy for my Round 1 250 Microfiction challenge. What is considered Romance Comedy? I read the Genre page and it suggests what might be in it. Does it have to be in a "meet cute" premise or am I ok to explore what else can be romantically funny? 

Cheers! :)

The genre definitions are intended to be suggested guidelines, so a "meet cute" premise is not mandatory. You can explore any story that combines love and humor, as long as the common elements are made apparent to the reader. Please let us know if you have any other questions or need anything else. Best of luck!
