Valentine’s Day Write Tag!


Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

I was about to post something else entirely today, and then Kat @ Life and Other Disasters tagged me in this SUPER fun write tag! I absolutely LOOOVE write tags, so I couldn’t help but do this one RIGHT away. Please do check out Kat’s blog. She is so sweet and you will love reading her answers!

The Rules

  • Thank the person who tagged you but also link back to the original post! (I want to see all your lovely answers, people!)
  • Provide a short description of your WIP/story!
  • Don’t use just one character for all answers if possible!

My WIP: Children of the Sun


Meredith, Rio, and Edene are detectives at the Deviant Investigation Unit. They are responsible for investigating strange deaths in the city of Toronto. One of the victims is Sandy.


It’s hard to be the only teenager on the Unit. On an online forum, Meredith meets fifteen-year-old Zenith, who is nice, funny, and seems to understand her though they never met in real life. Zenith lives with his mom, Carmen.

If there is a couple in your WIP, what are their plans for Valentine’s Day? And if there is no couple in your WIP, is there someone your main character would like to spend Valentine’s Day with?


Meredith doesn’t have a significant other, but she looks forward to spending Valentine’s Day with Rio. It’s not a date (she is too young for him, and he doesn’t believe in relationships anyway.)

Who has no shame about going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day alone?


Sandy would rather prefer her own company. People are over-rated.

One of your characters requests a song on the radio for their crush! Which song and for which character would they pick it?


Zenith would pick “Fly Me to the Moon” for Meredith, not only because it is his favourite jazz song by his favourite jazz musician, but also because the song choice would show maturity and depth of character. After all, how many teen boys know jazz?

Is there a character who would organise an Anti-Valentine’s Day party?

“Party” is Rio Matsui’s middle name. He loves an excuse to host a party, but a Valentine’s Day party? That’s just so lame.

What romantic gesture would swoon your main character?


Edene is a sucker for old romantic movies, which she would watch with a bucket of popcorn in one arm and a box of tissues within reach. Roses, is that too much to ask?

Which character would buy a bunch of red roses and hand them out to strangers on the street, just to make their day?


Sandy loves practical jokes. Once, she was hired by a radio show to give roses to strangers on Valentine’s Day. Why not spice things up with fake spiders?

What are your main character’s favourite Valentine’s movies?


Carmen doesn’t have a favourite Valentine’s movie, but her guilty pleasure is marathoning Gilmore Girls. Zenith used join her (back when he was smaller and had chubby cheeks.)

Who is ready for the February 15th, just to get all the chocolate on sale?


Rio can’t resist chocolate. Why can’t every day of the year be February 15th?

Is there a character who never spends Valentine’s Day alone aka always has some sort of date?

Edene always has a date for Valentine’s Day. Even if it is a different guy each year and it never ends up working out.

Bonus: Create a Valentine’s Day aesthetic for one or several of your characters!

Zenith is all tough and spiky on the outside, but he’s been waiting for the one person who will soften him up.

I won’t tag anyone this time. However, if you would like to do this tag, please go ahead and do it! 🙂


Any special plans for Valentine’s Day? Would you ever go out for dinner alone? (I’ve done it a few times and it terrifies me!) Tell me about your WIP!

  1. No special plans apart from flowers, chocolate and cuddles! Thankfully it’s many years since I was alone on Valentine’s Day but I was just not going out!

    1. That sounds like a special plan to me, Michael!! 🙂 My fiance and I are deferring Valentine’s Day celebrations to the weekend because of our long distance relationship, so today is just a regular day for me haha. Have a great evening 🙂 🙂

  2. OH I’m so glad you are talking a little bit about your WIP, yay! I really liked reading your answers here, your characters sound so great and I love the little aesthetics you did at the beginning of your post, too ❤ And Gilmore Girls marathons? I will join Carmen for that one for sure 😛

    1. Hello Marie ❤ Thank you so much for your sweet comment 🙂 🙂 I actually haven't watched Gilmore Girls (maybe it is too late to join the bandwagon now haha) however I listened to the Talking As Fast as I Can audiobook by Lauren Graham and loved it 🙂

      1. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE! You should watch the show, it may be a bit old, but it’s a lot of fun and Rory and Lorelei’s relationship is amazing ❤

      2. Maybe I will watch the show! There is something nostalgic about watching old TV shows, isn’t there? 🙂 I think some things are timeless!

    Oh, this is so fun! I love that we get snapshots of your WIP every now and then. I don’t really take issue with eating out alone. I actually do this from time to time. I think the bigger question is, where I would choose to go. I would not, say go out to Applebees by myself because, well, it’s really more of a family/group vibe there. But if it’s to a cafe, mom and pops restaurant, or even the place down the street from me, then yes, I would go.

    1. Hello 🙂
      Yes! I absolutely agree that it depends on where we go to eat. I am okay with going to cafes alone, or other places where it seems that others are also by themselves haha. It is the restaurants that usually cater to groups or families which really scare me 🙂
      Thank you so much ❤ I am glad to hear that you like posts like this 🙂

  5. How EVIL are fake spiders in roses? I hate spiders sooo much, Sandy has just lost sympathy points with me hahaha just kidding! Your characters all still sound amazing. I am so glad you took the time to do the tag 😀 and great aesthetics choices too!

  6. Great answers for this tag Sophie (I’m definitely in awe of how you managed to write and post this before Valentine’s Day as well!) I still have this one on my to-do list but it’s the next tag on my to-do list that’s for sure! 😀
    I loved learning a little more about your characters too. I’d be joining Rio on his February 15th mega chocolate haul (I just love chocolate) and like Sandy I’d have dinner on Valentine’s Day on my own too. Nine times out of ten I prefer my own company anyways! 🙂
    Great answers and great post! 😀 ❤️

    1. Hello Beth ❤
      I enjoy my own company for the most part as well (better alone than with people we don't like right?) 😀 However that is brave of you to have dinner by yourself! I have no problem eating alone at home (which I do all the time now since I am living alone) however it's hard to do in a public setting for me haha…
      I am also looking forward to a chocolate haul 😀
      Hope that you will do this tag (even if Valentine's Day is already passed). Looking forward to seeing your answers 🙂 ❤

      1. Hi Sophie. 🙂 I tend to go out by myself a fair bit so I end up eating by myself simply because I get hungry. Normally I have my Kindle with me so I’m not sitting bored in silence or anything. And yeah most times I just prefer to do my own thing so it works out better.
        I will definitely be doing this tag, even though Valentine’s Day has passed, there’s never a wrong time for love after all. 🙂
        Thanks! 😀 ❤
