Writing love stories

What could be more appropriate for Valentine's Day than a story of your love FOR the one you love? Today's workshop is more in the way of a prompt than a skill.

It doesn't matter who it is in your life, today is the day to tell him or her, even if you do it on paper (or computer keyboard). Tell the story of how you met, or your favorite day together -- or your favorite evening. Start with an event and be sure to include your passion in your writing.

Alternately, today's a good day for love letters. Choose a character you've already created and have that character write to the person he/she loves in the story (or in real life. You're the author, let the character write a love letter to YOU!). You might be surprised at what he/she writes.

Have some fun with this! After all, today's the day of passion and love. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Play safe,

PS. Don't forget that Learning Curve is available for free for today, tomorrow and the day after in the Kindle store!
