When you’re single & a romance writer on February 14th

On February 14th 2016 I’ll be in Paris sipping a ristretto and eating macarons at Ladurée’s on the Champs-Élysées! Ok I’ll admit that’s not quite the truth… I actually plan to spend my Valentine’s Day working on my romance novel while watching something along the lines of Sense and Sensibility or Emma. I think it’s hilariously ironic that I’m single and love writing romance stories, so on February 14th I think I might invest particular attention on some of the more angsty, we-will-never-end-up-together-but –then-we-do scenes. May as well let someone get some love in this world, even if it’s only fictional!

If you haven’t already, any single lovebirds out there simply must watch Cian Twomey’s video: When you have no date for valentine’s day (7 million views and counting). I’ve never laughed and snorted so hard in my life. You’ll never be able to say ‘Valentine’s Day’ again without an accent. And ‘Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? will take on a whole new meaning…

 

I also plan to watch Bridget Jones’s Diary (or Pride and Prejudice, either one), eat an entire block of chocolate (cheat meal day!) and read Seven Letter’s from Paris by Samantha Verant, thanks to Lisa’s must-read-that-book-now inducing review.

I want to marry a Frenchman ASAP

        1. I promise I didn’t laugh at your response!! I can just imagine you sitting there saying that. Oh and this is the first time I can say that I’m not (though I was when I wrote this article)

          1. I bet you did laugh at me. But seriously society places such an emphasis on “being in a relationship” that it puts social pressure on some folks. Just my opinion.

    1. Thanks!! Yes I ended up having a pretty good day! It was filled with pizza, chocolate & classic girly movies (instead of bridget jones, we watched Coyote Ugly – can’t believe it came out 16 years ago now!) Hope you had a lovely day as well!!

  1. I also love entering that world of romantic love, as a writer and reader of it, even though I am married. It’s just a sweet benefit of being a romance writer, regardless of whether or not we’re with someone. 🙂

      1. Haha, Millie!! That’s awesome! I just watched it again on Youtube and laughed so hard. I get emotional, too, when writing a great romantic ending, but wow, I’d love to get to that place where tears are pouring down my cheeks from what I write. 🙂 Write on, sis.
