Love Story ...?  

The August prompt for Writers Magazine is, simply, to write a 'love story'. Any ideas? I figured this would be a nice first go at a competition, and with such a universal theme I could easily resubmit the entry to other, less prestigious, journals. So love stories ... I'll sift through the orphaned River Song prompts for any ideas because at the moment I'm coming up blank.

I don't know what it is with me and my over-ambitious shots at things. I am re-reading my novel ready to submit to PanMcMillan for rejection, I am going to submit this screenplay to BBC's writersroom for rejection, and I am going to throw some short stories at big names too. It's the same with horses. I was looking online and you can actually get a decent Warmblood for less than £3k, so long as it hasn't affiliated or won prize money, so why spend that amount of money on alt else? Though I do still fancy an ID X. I'm also going to get some lessons in the winter so that I can actually ride said animals (like I used to be able to, six months ago, before I thought Prince's stupidly short strides was normal).

Anyway -- love story ideas please! Nothing too complicated. The screenplay is a romance but it has become way more than that.

In the meantime, I'm going away for four days! Woot woot!

Astrobiologist falls for dreamy primary school teacher.

(I had them both as female, but feel free to go f/m, m/m, etc)

A love story. Can it be between a person and his/her pet?

Can be open to interpretation of the prompt. One of the most awesome things about the WM writing prompts. :D

I decided to not to enter anything this month.

I have an elaborate plot planned out in my mind, though whether it will materialise is another question. Btw, Gazza, you wouldn't know when the deadline is for each competition? Is it the last day of each month?

It's usually 6-10 weeks. Haven't looked too closely at the last couple of issues though. Haven't found the time or been interested much in the prompts.
