Writing prompts for romance stories set in spring

Spring is a season of blooming flowers and blossoming romance. These writing prompts for romance stories are all themed around the spring season.

Many romance stories use spring motifs, especially when it comes to flowers, so why not take inspiration from that? You could start your story in spring, set it entirely in spring, or have spring as the backdrop to falling in love.

Any acknowledgement or credit for using any of my prompts is always appreciated, whether it’s linking to my website from yours or a social media shoutout.
