idea book

I dipped into my writers idea book and found some prompts on love. The first, write about "having faith" in love, based on a line in a Woody Allen movie: "Sometimes you have to have a little faith in people". The assignment was to write positively about trusting others, believing real and true and lasting love is possible.

It was difficult for me. I based my piece on knowing that I am capable of long, true, lasting love, that I work hard on relationships, and therefore others must too. But it was weak, I had trouble truly trusting.

I then wrote another piece on my ideal love. Lordy! I wrote and wrote. Much of what I want in an ideal mate is already present in myself. What does this mean, I wonder? Do I want someone with distinct characteristics different from my own in any respect? The details will be different but I want some things to be the same: I want a man who is kind, truthful, generous, thoughtful, passionate, hopeful yet realistic. Physically, I'd like him to be tall and attractive "in an intelligent sort of way". I wonder about having a man who is obviously attractive to women - is that something else, though, more an attitude than a physical attribute?

I am glad I wrote that. It took 25 minutes, about, to write both of these things. I promised myself five minimum. So good.
