You see it in movies, you read about it…… smooching in the surf as the waves wash over you. Making love in a scented candle-lit room. Finding a beautiful engagement ring in a glass of Moet champagne?
Authors, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to take these romantic clichés and turn them on their proverbial heads.
Sand can get pretty itchy if it gets into the wrong places, plus you have to watch out for that seaweed. Oh, did we mention the sand crabs?
Don’t get to enthusiastic with your lovemaking in that candle lit room – you might kick over a candle and…..whoops!
Oh, wow, you didn’t see the ring in the glass of champagne? You….swallowed it??
No trope is off limits, go where your imagination takes you.
