Valentine Roses.

There is nothing so romantic as a bunch of red roses.  Does this picture inspire you to write a romantic short story or poem?

Maybe you could write a 'Mills & Boon' classic? 

romantic writing.

With the Royal Wedding approaching, I think we should all begin our romantic novel.  Hope the picture provides some ideas.

Let me know.

Try new Genres for 2011


Try new genres for 2011,

Write about health and the beauty of Devon.

Create a crime solving detective

With spiky hair and studs in both cheeks.

Try some poetry and tips of the week.

Whatever you do, write every day.

Send out ideas and maybe some jokes.

Animal stories and practical tips,

Write about finance or memorable day trips.

All in all it’s just a plan,

I’ll try to stick to it if I can.

New genres would be good.

Better than being stuck in the mud.
