Happy Valentine’s Day!
During my search for a Valentine’s Day card to share with you, I came across an image that–what can I say?–it spoke to me.
I felt that little tug in my heart that whispers: here’s a story.
So instead of sending you a valentine, I’m sharing this image with you. Do you hear its whispers, too?
Pretend with me.
Imagine your character is walking in a park, grateful for the warmth of a sunshiny day that promises spring is coming soon. Something shiny in the grass catches her eye, and she finds this ornate key and lock tied with slender ribbon to a ceramic heart. Deep inside she knows it’s meant for her.
But what does it mean?
Does it symbolize a love she has found? Or a love she has lost?
Which story would you prefer to read? Or to write?
