Two-Sentence Hallmark Movie #SOL22

Back in February, my Time to Write writing group participated in a writing challenge. We were to create a two-sentence Hallmark Christmas movie. Here are two of mine that aren't really Christmas and with a few revisions. This was so much fun!

Lily hides quietly in the romance section of the public library, looking through the tiny space between the Virgin River books when her cerulean eyes lock with his green ones. Two chapters later they find themselves within the pages of their own novella.

Twinkling and glistening, the snow falls from the sky as Chris and Sabrina walk hand in hand toward her car. As a single snowflake lands softly on her glossed lip, he draws his finger down the snow-covered window, whispers, "Look, a diamond in the snow," and hears her gasp as he places a ring on her finger--the end to a perfect night.

  1. That was a fun but hard challenge. I don't remember hearing your second one. It is so romantic. Maybe I will try it again for one of my slices this week.

  2. This is fun! I've been thinking about word limiting challenges and this is one I hadn't thought of. Your descriptions were apt, and you captured the hallmark ethos well!

  3. I agree with Heather and Tim! That looks like fun but also challenging! I always think that word/sentence challenges will be easy, yet they end up taking me so long!

  4. You have a romance novel in you. Or perhaps a novella. Packing a lot into two sentences is a fun challenge.

  7. These are brilliant. I never could have written something so clever. Maybe I need to watch more Hallmark movies.

  8. What a fun challenge. I admit that I am not a Hallmark TV, but both of these sound like they would fit right in.

  11. Your teaser got me interested. As a Hallmark movie devotee, I would love to engage in a challenge like this. Your movie responses are quite good, especially the last one. Love Is In the Air by Leigh Anne Eck.
