Romance Writing Prompt Challenge

Who doesn't love a challenge? Last year the contributors all worked together to write a Halloween short story and loved it! We wanted to continue this tradition of writing together, but this time, open it up to anyone and everyone! 

For us contributors, writing romance is not the main genre we write in. In genre writing, romance often plays the role of a subplot. Not this time! Now is the time to push ourselves as writers and write a full-on romantic short story. I was able to find this awesome list of romantic writing prompts from Lady Writer

So here is the challenge:

  1. Click on the list above and pick a writing prompt. 
  2. Write for no more than 30 minutes. 
  3. Edit your story. If it's longer than 1,000 words, cut it down to 1,000 (if you want it published on this blog.)
  4. Send your story to us! I will post any stories we receive on the blog.  
Few things to keep in mind:

  • Keep your story PG-13 ish. No exotica stories, please. 
  • Keep story at or under 1,000 words
  • Curse words are fine.
  • If your story does not fall within the rules stated above, it will not be published. 
  • Entries will close on Feb. 14th. All stories will be published after this date.
To send us your story, simply click on the tab that says Story Submissions and fill out the form. 

That's it! Think you're up for the challenge?
