The big gestures.
The puffy Valentine’s Cards. The flowers. The chocolates. The tickets to the theatre/show/cinema. The sky writing where the pilot does not spell the girl’s name correctly.
How do we say ‘I love you?’ in life?
For me it is the small things. The daily gestures. The subtle physical and emotional touches that trigger that certain smile and cheeky grin. Consideration, caring and loving. One person in tune with the needs of the other.
Now. How to express and capture all of those things on the page of a romance novel. THAT is quite another challenge.
