In the days of Love, Wine and Roses

Well, it’s that time of year again.

Valentine’s Day.

Are you stumped for this year’s gift? Need a prompt?


After so many years together, it’s hard to surprise my love. We know each other better than we know ourselves. So yes I’m stumped every year.

If you’re in the same boat, try writing a flash fiction piece or a poem that expresses, a moment in time, from your past. Keep it to 100 words. But like all good writer, make the story bigger than life.

You can start with this writing prompt.

I remember… 


Need more inspiration? 

Add one of the senses such as smell, sight or touch. “I remember the smell of…”

Or perhaps your special memory is a first. A first dance, kiss, hug, date, or dinner.


Got the idea?

Mine starts out with, “I remember the swagger of a self-assured man who turned heads and watched in disbelief when….”

Still not inspired?
