Hello folks!

Welcome to the first WEP challenge for 2016 - we open the year in February and it's all about the Valentine.

Does it hold special meaning, or is it just another day? Do you have fond memories such as the angst of young love waiting for a Valentines card from a schoolyard crush or were you the one who missed out while all your friends got loads of cards?

Did you have a nasty boyfriend or girlfriend who texted on Valentine's Day to break up?

Alternatively, did you have a husband or wife, the romantic at heart, who surprised you with a secret Valentine's Day trip to the place of your dreams?

These are just a few examples.

Poetry – Valentine's Day is all about the poetry – I doubt our poets need any prompting here.

For a non-fiction piece or a tale of fiction, 1000 words or less, use the prompts above or a story special to you.

For a visual piece, do you have a Valentine's tale that goes along with a saved Valentine, or one you created on your own – share it and tell us the story behind it?

Alternatively, post a picture of love or something that signifies what the holiday means to you.

We also know there are anti-valentine folks out there, and that's fine too. Tell us why and how you celebrate love, without the need for a holiday.

Make this challenge yours – what does Valentine's Day mean to you?

Here's the code if you wish to publish on your blog.
