Writing Prompts for Romance Writers

Updated on October 26, 2019

I'm an amateur writer, and I enjoy sharing my tips and steps with you guys.



Greetings Friends

Most people love a good love story, right? The ones where the girl meets the boy and they fall in love. Or the one where they couldn't stand each other but fate brought them together.

I love romance books, poetry about romances, and I love writing them. I like to believe that true love does exist and happily ever afters can happen. Don't you?

In this article, I will be discussing 3 writing prompts that can be used in your romance books, novels, poetry, etc. These prompts are either the ones I've found interesting or I want to use.

Here are the prompts:


1. Friends to Lovers

Friends to Lovers has always been a favorite of mine. I believe friends falling in love with one another is a beautiful thing.

"Aren't you supposed to be friends before lovers anyway?" is a question I've asked and a question I've seen others ask as well. In my opinion, the answer to that is yes, but it's also different situations.

It's a difference between being strictly friends and realizing you want to be with one another, and purposefully being friends because you don't want to jump into things too fast.

Either way, I think it's a beautiful thing and something that is worthy of being written.

However, there can be troubling times where you might be afraid it could ruin friendships. But I recommend trusting that the friendship is strong enough to get through specific obstacles.


2. We Met While On Vacation

I used to watch a lot of Hallmark and Lifetime movies. Although, some of the movies, weren't that good, I did enjoy the plot of it. I like the idea of meeting someone while you're trying to have fun. I think the situation is natural and not at all forced.

The idea of a person going on vacation to get away from stress and meeting someone that they instantly click with? That's so romantic and very cheesy but some people love that cheese.

It's even better because they're both from different places, that's a test to see if they're serious about their feelings. I'm a firm believer that distance makes love stronger.

This prompt, to me, can be done well if you actually free your mind. Don't overthink it and don't force it, just let your story happen.


3. Our Children Became Friends And They Want To Have A Play-date

I don't have children but I do have nieces and nephews, these things can and do happen.

Also, I believe it's so cute how two parents can come together in love through their children. Innocent children, who just want to hang out and don't know that they're setting their parents up.

It's beautiful to me and it's beautiful no matter the pairing. I've read stories about female and male partners, male partners, and female partners. They were all so beautiful to me and such a great read.

There's also the DRAMA!

The other parent may become jealous and try to stop it. The family might not approve or one specific family member. There's so many possibilities for this prompt.

Love, Life, Romance



Writing romances can be difficult but also so much fun. You have to make sure to convey every emotion and not leave out any detail. But the story itself can turn out to be so beautiful in the end.

That's the romantic in me talking...

Thanks for reading this and I hope you enjoyed the prompts I've given!

See you later darlings!

Thank You!
