Writer as Lover
Some hate it, some like it but regardless your opinion Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. The prompt is easy, and I am sure many will greatly resist it or end up quickly trashing it before anyone can see it, write a love scene. Love and sex are everywhere you look, but writers tend to struggle with writing an honest account of either. If you write fiction write a 1500 word love scene, if you write poetry write a two page narrative poem about a love scene. Use honest language, push away from the Valentine language. Sometimes less is more, sometimes you have to just go there. Fresh imagery and honest language may create something you would have resisted ever writing.
