I’m writing. I’m writing another story. It will be a short story. 1288 words so far and I just got it a couple of days ago. 🙂 I’m glad when a plan comes together. Short writing deadline but I think I can make it. It’s flowing pretty good when I have a chance to write. Maybe I will tonight. Who knows? Maybe I’ll get it to a series…but not before I finish it for Love’s Landscapes.
Love’s Landscapes? What’s that? I picked up a prompt from the MM Romance Group Love’s Landscapes Event over at Goodreads.com group area (https://www.goodreads.com/topic/group_folder/218428). You must be a member to see it. I also wrote a prompt and it was picked up by a lovely author and I can’t wait to see what she does with it.
Below is the first draft of the description of the pictures and the prompt, so you can see what I have to work with. It will be fun. If you do go and look at the pictures, let me know if I did the picture descriptions justice.
Photo 1: A tall, good-looking man with short, roman-cut hair, piercing eyes of indeterminate color, and high cheekbones in an oval, masculine face with pouty lips is walking towards the viewer. He wears a gold crown tilted back with two red stones visible on front. He has a brown, thigh-length fur coat with a black fur collar, a dark brown scarf, and leopard-patterned gloves. His long black pants partially cover the top of his silver-studded black boots.
Photo 2: A golden-tanned man with black pants hanging hip level in a black background is facing away from the viewer. He has short, straight, ginger hair with brown and gold highlights and a muscular back without a shirt. His left hand clutches a long silver sword at the hilt near the left side of his head, across his broad shoulders, and cut off from the picture to his right with his right arm hanging down.
As Crown Prince to the human nation, I could have anyone I choose but to end the war between the humans and the griffons, I must marry the youngest son of the Griffon King. The night before I’m to be married, I meet a man who captures my attention at first glance but before I can talk to him, he disappears. How am I supposed to marry someone I’ve never met when I’ve finally found someone who’s captured my interest? But I suppose it’s for the best because no matter what, I’m determined to end this war… I just hope my betrothed is someone I can grow fond of…

P.S. I want this to be similar to a classic fairy tale (without the evil woman trope) in a historical fantasy setting with shapeshifters that turn into griffons and where arranged marriage of same-sex couples is the norm. Sweet but no sex although sexual tension is allowed. That means kisses are okay but no frottage, BJs, handjobs, etc. No cheating, sharing, menage or open relationships and please don’t make the Crown Prince a slut! I would like him to be standoffish and uninterested in every man but his love interest. HEA is a must. Thank you for putting up with my demands!! ^_^
