I have to write a stupid romantic story. I did have a story which I posted past of on the forum but when I finished it was over 2000 words too long and it wasn't very romantic and just went on and on and on.

I am thinking about doing a romantic story based in Victorian Times with a Nursery Maid and a Footman. I know quite a bit about Victorian Times for I know what I would be writting about. Is this a good idea or should I try and shorten my other story?

It is due in on Wednesday but I also have to write a commentry on it as well.

Your other one was with the female ninjas etc wasn't it? I'd say write a new one, I can't remember the old one well, but it wasn't very romantic from what I recall(?!), though I may be wrong.

Well i haven't read your other story, but assuming that you have well formulated it in your mind and have worked out all that is going on (themes, characters, crechendo and all the rest of it) i just advise you to stick with the one you have, and edit it. Dont go writing a new one now, you only have a few days left mate.

Good luck

Lol female ninjas? that sounds crazy... for a Love story? well unless its the new Kill Bill diametric (opposite in terms of Romance, not quality) I guess you should write a new one.

...if you want to do somthing from the east write me somthing like Mulan, awww i like that film

Yes the other one was the female ninjas one...the guy ended with the bad gal at the end for some strange reason and it was 8 pages long - 7 pages of fighting 1 page of lovely dovely.

I have my new story already in my head I just need to write it down. So should I or shouldn't I?

Hehe, i only have 21 (now 22 posts)

But i have read some other threads about it and i understand that:

The little coloured boxes next to your number of posts indicate your 'reputation'. Everybody starts with one green box, each additional box is worth 100 points of rep. You can give someone 'rep' by clicking on the little shouting face at the bottom of someones post (next to the edit button) Then you decide to either give them positive or negative rep.

It is really a hypothetical indication of how esteemed your posts are regarded

All the films and books I have read on the subject tell me a servants life was a miserable life and if servants wanted to marry they left service so they would be jobless and poor...

How about an illicit afair between a servant girl and the master of the household. Some lovey stuff at the beginneg, but then finds out she is rpegnant. Then throws her out. She dies/commits sucide. Short and sweet.

basically, visit the house, meet the guys, sneaking into empty rooms late at night, discovered by another servant, visits over, go they're separate ways.
