I found this great prompt through the Finish This Sentence Friday blog hop. So, here it goes.
When I was young, I tried to write a romance novel.
I don't mean last year, or even five years ago, I mean in high school.
I guess I thought I knew something about love, and writing, which is strange considering I had absolutely no experience in the romance department, physical or otherwise. My biggest notion of romance was the raging crush I had on Corin Nemec from Parker Lewis Can't Lose. Yet there I was in the library, checking out a book on how to write romance. I must have figured that since I had a few short stories under my belt (the only thing under my belt at that time, ha-ha) I could craft a compelling 300+ word sweeping historical epic. I don't remember if I I actually finished reading the book, or if I even started writing one, at least not until about five years ago.
Live and learn.
