Meet cute

Thanks to Alyson Hilbourne for telling me about this competition. They want up to 1,000 words about a 'meet cute' i.e. the first meeting of two romantic characters. It's free to enter and 'sweet Valentine's goodies' and pink champagne are offered as prizes.



I'm guessing the sweet stuff is chocolate, but Alyson suggested it could involve cake. Do you think one of us is right, or could it be something else?




Had you heard the term meet cute before? No, me neither.

Meet cute makes me think of a small, furry baby animal...

Yes, I've heard the term before. It's in Romancing the Beat by Gwen Hayes, though apparently meet cute has been around since mid 20th century.

I was working on the meet cute scene last week in my wip. :-)

The term is used a lot in the film industry. How the protagonists 'Meet Cute' is always an important ingredient in a Rom Com....
