I’ve covered the question “What if?” pretty thoroughly in the last couple of weeks. On the off chance you haven’t had enough yet, here’s one more batch of “What If?” writing prompts for you, this time in one of my favorite genres: romance. See what you can do with these, and feel free to add more of your own! Enjoy!
What if… love at first sight – true love in one look – actually can happen in real life?
What if… Friar Laurence’s plan had worked, and Romeo and Juliet had succeeded in running away together?
What if… nobody believed in fate, but instead had to trust in their own abilities to find love?
What if… people only ever fell in love based on inner beauty?
What if… love is an emotion that isn’t exclusive to humans, but that any living creature is capable of experiencing?
Good luck spinning your own tales in the timeless theme of romance!
