When it comes to romance, one of the best moments in any romance novel is that moment of the declaration of love. Whether it be offhandedly said or said in a rage or if it was planned in a romantic setting, that moment is one of the reasons I know I read romance novels and write them. I love coming up with unique and exciting yet realistic ways for the moment to happen in a book.
Although in real life, sometimes it happens on the spur of the moment. In life that moment is a huge moment between two people. And sometimes it comes out in ways that make it memorable. I love thinking up ways that two people could tell each other that they love each other, but it always has to fit the situation.
In one of my books, I have one person angry at the other that they do not immediately hear the declaration of love toward them. Another book I have written in a romantic setting. When this happens, it depends on the two people and how they play off with each other.
In my life, I have not had that moment often, for it happened only twice in my life. One time it was said too quickly and was not romantic or memorable. It was not a moment to be remembered. The other time I had that special moment, it was a moment to remember. It was special and beautiful. Since this moment can be different per person and personality, I also like to portray that in my writing. However, I always prefer to write something special. That moment is meant to be special and remembered. And that is how I like to write. Even though it may not always be in real life, I believe that for those who find true love, that moment is always special.
Let me know your special moments. I would love to hear them.
