The theme for Day #3 of Short-Story Month is Romance short fiction. Here I must say I haven’t read or written a lot of it, but I’ll mention a few writers I know who have: Angel Martinez for starters. And ‘Nathan Burgoine, who started this blog thread writes a series about a guy called Lightning Todd who can see the future and who does his share of matchmaking.
As for my own writing, there isn’t much romance, but some of the short-shorts have a tinge of romance. The Monthly Flash Fiction Draw Challenge for March 2018 (posted on this blog) features a romance (and a firewatch tower and a VCR tape!)
Usually, I write about happily-ensconced couples, and haven’t done much of the matchmaking bit myself!
Maybe I should!
