(And no, I am not addressing only those of us who write in one of the romance sub-genres)
Inspiration for our stories is everywhere, especially this time of the year with signs of Valentine's Day all around us. So, I'm here to challenge all of you to use this spirit of love and let some of that inspiration take hold.
And remember, love of a romantic nature is not all there is. It could be about love for a child, a parent, a sibling, a friend... Or perhaps the care, compassion, or love for an animal or nature. Heck, your character's compassion for mankind in general, for that matter.
So, discover where your character's passions reside, and inspiration will surely follow.
