Folks, I’m 200 plus pages into the writing of my second novel and I’m having so much fun! It’s harder to find time to visit you all on here, but I’m writing more consistently than I ever have and that’s a great feeling.
Sometimes, I ask myself why I bother writing fiction. I have ideas for non-fiction books. A couple really good ideas that I think I could sell to a publisher. But I keep going back to fiction, because I love it.
I think we all like things in attractive packaging. What woman can resist a beautifully wrapped gift box, topped with a shiny bow? To me, that’s what fiction is. At least the kind of fiction I read and write. It’s a story that speaks to us in some way, that helps us understand ourselves, those around us or God a little better. But it’s tied up in a really pretty package that keeps us interested. To me, that’s what writing love stories is about.
So, it always inspires me when I see something truly romantic in real life. This morning, I saw the following video on Facebook and I just had to share it with you all. I don’t know these people. I have no idea what their story is. But by the end of this clip, I bet, like me, you will laugh and cry along with them and wish you knew them in real life. This is one of the most creative proposals ever. Enjoy!
and then…if you have time to watch this mini-documentary…it’s another incredibly romantic and beautiful proposal…but this dude planned not only the proposal, but for the wedding to happen on the same day!
