Love. One little word that has so many different meanings. There are so many ways of saying it or showing it.
Battles and conflict have started and ended because of it, Writers and Musicians through the centuries have been inspired by it. It would be such a miserable world without it. What would Shakespeare have done if love didn't exist? The Beetles would never have been able to write 'All you need is love' and Valentines day wouldn't be celebrated as it is on this day.
But it doesn't have to be just in the romantic sense. Love is an amazing and generous thing. It shares itself with a massive audience and appears in many different forms.
As a writer, what ever genre you may specialise in, Love seems to come into it. Historical fiction;Murder Mystery;Humour;Sci-fi;Crime and even Horror, Love always finds a way of creeping into the plot of a story.
What an amazing word, and even if you are not celebrating Love today as a 'Lover' I hope that you can still appreciate what an incredible thing love is.
