Diary of a Writer – February Writing Prompt – Romance Reading Month

Throughout February as part of the special events planned to mark its 60th Anniversary year, the Romantic Novelists’ Association is celebrating the joy of reading romance.

 Romance Reading Month – The RNA is launching its first Romance Reading Month during February. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Fall in love with a love story:

Love Your Library week (1 – 7 Feb)

Make a date with a book on Valentine’s Day.

As a grand finale of Romance Reading Month Leap Into A Love Story Day on the 29th. Why not get together with other romance lovers and talk about books on the 29th?

The picture above was taken when I was a member of the RNA committee. I’d graduated from their New Writers’ Scheme to being a published writer and was ‘paying back’ a little for all that help. The RNA  is a truly supportive organisation and has been for 60 years.

Next Saturday and Sunday, the Scottish chapter of the RNA will be hosting an online Facebook event featuring some of the great members who live up here and allowing you, our wonderful readers, the chance to read an extract from some of our work. The link is here.

How is this a writing prompt? Well, it’s some time since I wrote a full length romance and seeing the picture above reminds me of the thrill of having work out there. Sleeves rolled up and fingers poised above the keyboard…

MARIAH’S MARRIAGE, DAISY’S DILEMMA and COURTING THE COUNTESS are all available in the library.

COURTING THE COUNTESS can also be bought here for your kindle.

Kelly Lacey is hosting a month long celebration of the RNA on her blog, Love Books Group. Kelly will feature a different romance author on all 29 days of February and kicks off with former RNA Chair, Christina Courtney. You can find Kelly’s blog here .

It’s going to be an exciting year. I’ll keep you updated.
