Romance Writing Prompts: April 2017

Romance Writing Prompts

We’re back this week! And we are offering four new romantic writing prompts for your inspiration. It’s time to write your very own love story or add a romantic subplot to an ongoing story! Don’t forget to share your stories and artwork with us!

I have set myself the goal of finishing the Brix and Gregor first draft by the end of this month. I have eleven chapters remaining at the time of typing this. The story is going to need a lot of work. My excitement over the project has certainly waxed and waned to dramatic extremes. Once the draft is complete however, I plan to take a couple of weeks away from it before trying to make it readable. In that time, I will begin drafting a new story for Detective Peirson.

Romance Writing Prompts-Apr2017-Their love forbidden, they lived side by side as victims of a cruel fate.

Valentine’s Day Writing Prompts: February 2017

Valentine’s Day Writing Prompts

As you may have realized by now, Leslie and I aren’t big on the mushy side of romance. Our idea of celebrating Valentine’s Day is raiding the marked down chocolate on the 15th of February. That inspired the first of this week’s writing prompts. If you’re looking for the sappy love story, these probably are not the writing prompts for you. Or maybe they are. After all, it is your story. And please share those stories with us. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

I would like to remind you that I’m taking this week off of flash fiction so I can get everything sorted out after the ten part series of Red Herring. I really hope you enjoyed it. Detective Peirson will see more cases in the future. Hopefully in a longer format than flash fiction. I’m currently in Chapter 3 of the first draft for a story containing Brix and Gregor that I’m pretty excited about.

Holiday Writing Prompts Part 3: December 2016

Holiday Writing Prompts Part 3

We were in the middle of making these last week and the power went out. The images were saved roughly two minutes beforehand. Sigh of relief. By the time the power returned, we were having a new set of windows installed in our living room. So we just decided to wait until this week to post Part 3 of the Holiday Writing Prompts. Not going to lie, neither one of us are much for the “holiday spirit” so the week off saved us on coming up with additional prompts.

On to these new prompts: Les has created three new holiday (ish)themed romantic prompts. Please share your stories and artwork with us. Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and happy writing!

Holiday Writing Prompts Part 3-Dec 2016-Another year gone and she had no one to love.
Another year gone and she had no one to love. She watched the first flakes of snow sit gently on her window. She made a wish not knowing it would come true.
Holiday Writing Prompts Part 3-Dec 2016-As she walked towards the exit of her favorite coffee shop, she glanced down at her cup.
As she walked towards the exit of her favorite coffee shop, she glanced down at her cup. “You’re beautiful” was written in place of her name. She glanced back, and their eyes met.
Holiday Writing Prompts Part 3-Dec 2016-Today was miserably cold and he couldn’t understand why everyone was so happy, until he saw her.

Romance Writing Prompts: November 2016

Romance Writing Prompts

It has been a couple of months since we lasted visited the romance genre. Most of the projects have been suffering from major writer’s block as I steadily pour everything I have into the big first draft I started for NaNoWriMo. It’s been a bumpy start so far, but every day seems to make the project a little more clear and easier to write. I very highly doubt the first draft will be anywhere near complete by December, but I’m determined to get this one done. The piles of notes on the other two novels are staring in a jealous-filled rage, I’m sure.

But, anyway, these writing prompts are brought to you by Leslie. She very clearly told me to not give her credit for these and to just share them as if I wrote them. Obviously, I’m not good at that kind of thing. I hope you enjoy her romance themed writing prompts. Perhaps you’re starting your own NANoWriMo project a bit late or need some romantic inspiration. Please share your creations with us! Happy writing!
