When you’re single & a romance writer on February 14th

On February 14th 2016 I’ll be in Paris sipping a ristretto and eating macarons at Ladurée’s on the Champs-Élysées! Ok I’ll admit that’s not quite the truth… I actually plan to spend my Valentine’s Day working on my romance novel while watching something along the lines of Sense and Sensibility or Emma.

I think it’s hilariously ironic that I’m single and love writing romance stories, so on February 14th I think I might invest particular attention on some of the more angsty, we-will-never-end-up-together-but –then-we-do scenes. May as well let someone get some love in this world, even if it’s only fictional!

If you haven’t already, any single lovebirds out there simply must watch Cian Twomey’s video: When you have no date for valentine’s day (7 million views and counting). I’ve never laughed and snorted so hard in my life. You’ll never be able to say ‘Valentine’s Day’ again without an accent. And ‘Hello? Hello? Hello? Hello? will take on a whole new meaning…

I also plan to watch Bridget Jones’s Diary (or Pride and Prejudice, either one), eat an entire block of chocolate (cheat meal day!) and read Seven Letter’s from Paris by Samantha Verant, thanks to Lisa’s must-read-that-book-now inducing review.

I want to marry a Frenchman ASAP

  1. Hi Millie
    Genuinely enjoy your writing! I totally relate on the single yet writing romance part. That moment when you realize I’d make a great girlfrienday because I’ve had professional training in relationships from every Romance book I’ve read. 😂 And the video 😱😱was soo good. I never related to a video that much haha. Sad. 🤔 But I enjoy being single as well. Keeps me believing in all my fantasies about love. Kinda ducks when you’re in a relationship and you realize you can’t dream about Prince Charming anymore because you’re dating a guy that snores and acts like a moron most of the time😂

    Cheers
    Love from SA

    • Thanks!! Yes I ended up having a pretty good day! It was filled with pizza, chocolate & classic girly movies (instead of bridget jones, we watched Coyote Ugly – can’t believe it came out 16 years ago now!) Hope you had a lovely day as well!!

  3. I also love entering that world of romantic love, as a writer and reader of it, even though I am married. It’s just a sweet benefit of being a romance writer, regardless of whether or not we’re with someone. 🙂
