Valentine’s Day Exercise

Valentine’s Day provides a useful focus for exploring your character’s relationships.

Write a scene in which your character receives a Valentine card or gift. Do they know who it is from? Do they suspect? How do they react?
Write how they respond – do they contact the person they think it’s from? Supposing they are wrong?
Think of an unexpected person who could have sent it. How does this complicate your story?
