February: The Month of Romance

Leave a Comment to Enter!

February is often called the month of romance. When I'm developing a story, I think of what's romantic and one of the things I look at is the setting.

Where and when does the story take place?

Many of my stories are set in the south (USA), but I've also set books in fictional towns and villages, even a fictional city state in Central America. As for when, I've even written a futuristic colony world on the far edge of the galaxy (Open Season).

Thinking of romantic settings, what would you consider a romantic place and/or time?

Contest ends midnight, Wednesday, February 5, 2014. Good Luck.

I think just about anywhere can be romantic given the right people. Stuck in a cabin in a snowstorm can be romantic. (Looks out the window at the snow.) :)

Romantic place, a small secluded cove on a private island in the Pacific Ocean.

Hi Cassandra
It's all about the two people involved. It can be just taking a ride through the country via back roads. Or just being together at the park.
Thanks

A romantic place I've always wanted to go to would be Scotland, in one of the castles. Not to mention listening to the men talk..that accent just does it for me.

I don't think it's the place that makes a moment romantic, but the people. And if I had the chance to go anywhere with a honey, I'd pick that cabin in a snowstorm that N.J. Walters mentioned above. Fireplace, gourmet food not cooked by me, a huge, soft bed, and plenty of windows to fog up. As long as when it's time to leave, I'm carried to the waiting vehicle, or we stay so long it's spring. ;) (hate walking in snow and ice, haha)

A cabin in the woods or a beach house.

Hi Cassandra,

I agree with the others. Just about any place can be romantic, the two persons involved make it romantic!

Anyplace around water! A secluded beach cabin or a cabin in the woods near a waterfall would be my first choices. They'd have to be luxurious, of course, and cater to my every whim. Wouldn't that be lovely?

A romantic place and time would be back in the 1700's or maybe 1600's when everything was much more simple. Love was love, no technology and there were big open meadows not apartment buildings everywhere :) And the place would be by a sweet little river in a big open meadow of wildflowers with the sun shining down :)

A romantic place for me would be in the gardens of a mansion, "fairy" lights all around in the very begining of autumn at night. The time for me would be in the 1920's (enough technology for my pleasures & not so much to be overwhelmed).

OMG. Those earrings are sooo beautiful. I believe a trip to the Mediterranean would be so romantic any year. The weather is sooo nice especially during April and so many wonderful beaches and countryside to hide away in! Best wishes, and special ones being sent to you for a Happy Birthday, early. xoxo
