I mentioned summer romances and I thought back to a prompt that I started with a writer who looks to escape the noise of the city only to hear the sounds of a chainsaw from the owner of her cabin rental. There’s nothing like a quick romance story at the edge of a lake.
Instead of drawing childlike mushrooms and fantasy worlds, my pen might turn more adult. It’s been a while since I did some steamy adult romance and even I need a break from the happy pink of my office. There’s no bubble gum in my adult stories. And no child should be reading that kind of content.
So, if anyone tells me to grow up, well that’s how I do it. I take their advice literally because we all need to be adults sometimes. And that’s how I’m going take their advice. Short, sweet, and steamy.
Everyone who’s gone to the cabin during the summer or went on summer vacation had those thoughts of a sweet summer romance that you could make all your friends jealous over when you returned to school. We still think about those moments as adults. We don’t have to lose those romances as writers.
This leads me to your prompt for today. Write about a summer romance or story you lost for 5-10 minutes today. In fact, this is your prompt for the rest of the week. Add 5-10 minutes to your story every day this week and see what you end up with on Sunday.
My posts are Monday through Friday.
