Whoseywhatsit Thursday: Writing Prompt!

It's time for another Whoseywhatsit writing prompt, from yours truly. This week's topic (no surprise) ...

Valentine's Day and LOVE.

Maybe a kissing scene. A first glance. Or a first date ... could be a romantic picnic or a darkened movie theater.

I think the key to these scenes, in order to pull the reader in completely, is to make sure you're using several senses. What does the love interest smell like? Does she have on a flavor Chapstick? What is the texture of his hair? And, even more importantly, what's going on in her head while all this happening?

You have up to 250 words to get your character in the love zone - develop a flashback, write a poem, try something new, whatever you want. Post those words below and then comment on at least one other person's writing. (You don't need to necessarily critique it, this isn't polished writing people!)

Ready. Set. Go! And when you're done, consider joining our That's Y'Amore blogfest!

  1. I'm all ready for the That's L'Amore post! In the meantime, I'm studying up on love triangles. Just posted on my blog about cassandra Clare's lecture on them.


Breaths that matter...
