Love Is In The Air
In honor of Valentine's Day, let's combine romance with my other favorite thing--writing. And how about throwing in a contest, too!
You know my passion for six-word memoirs. Here are six six-word memoirs I wrote for Valentine's Day:
Chocolates. Roses. Champagne. Hugs still best.
What I love about you? Everything.
Mature love's better than puppy love.
Loves me, loves me not. Does!
Etched our initials on the mountaintop.
He thinks I'm the one. Ditto.
There. See, it's not hard. Please enter your own six-word memoir about Valentine's Day in the comment section, and you'll be eligible to win IT ALL CHANGED IN AN INSTANT a collection of 1,000 six-word memoirs by famous writers, celebrities and not-so-famous authors like me!
Deadline to enter: February 14 at midnight. (You may enter up to six six-word memoirs.) Drawing will be held February 15. Good luck.

More than passion; love is commitment.ReplyDelete
Word love is overused--actions? NOT!
Love is expressed in thoughtfulness, deeds.
Lust and love are worlds apart.
Want unconditional love? Get a puppy.
Love blossoms only with tender care.
Good ones, Ginny. My favorite of yours is: "Lust and love are worlds apart."Delete
So true. Thanks for playing!

These are really good, Carol! Many share your feeling that Valentine's Day is a Hallmark holiday. Love the brides in Vegas! I observed that when I was there. So glad you figured out how to post!Delete
