For over seven years, I have been coming up with new ideas every week for The Write Prompts. Here, I do the same, only these are all starter or "continue on" writing prompts. They are a great way to get the juices flowing when you do not know where to start.
StumbleUpon The best collection of love letter prompts on the web. Last year after we did this for two months our marriage was stronger than ever! Even after being apart that long. In fact, when we came back to the humdrum of everyday life and busy schedules, we were both feeling a bit empty in comparison to the daily soul-bearing we had grown accustomed to while we were apart.
My life is oozing spontaneity. And it was a great way to remind each other that we like each other. So, if you find yourself away from your spouse for a while, or you just need to vamp up your love tanks, I HIGHLY recommend emailing each other love letters.

Play two truths and a lie. List a few times in your life you wish you would have had your spouse with you. Plan out real future date nights. Rich could have been a poet.
And I never knew until love letters. Record all first impressions of each other you can remember. Other Top 10 lists could include: Post and talk about your favorite pictures of each other. Google newly wed questions and answer them for both you and your spouse.
Have your spouse do the same. Write out your favorite things about your kids. Write about the funniest memory you have together. Or that might be too hard to pick just one, so write about some times when you deep-belly laughed together.
If you had to commit a crime together, what would it be? What about your spouse do you feel you know the least about? What about yourself do you think your spouse knows the least about?
If you could go back and give yourself advice about marriage when you were dating, what would you say? What have you learned?
