The Forgotten Language of Flowers In the early 18th century the Turkish "Secret Language of Flowers" was introduced to Europe by Lady Mary Wortley Montague, wife of the British ambassador to Constantinople. Flowers had long been a sign of romance but now lovers were able to send secret messages to each other by means of sending a posy of flowers. Each flower had a specific meaning and the order of arrangement had much to do with the intended "message". The French seem to have taken this idea to heart. Dark-Fenix Music Awards 2013 #1.

Writing Gender-Specific Dialogue Writing dialogue to suit the gender of your characters is important in any genre, but it becomes even more essential in romance writing. In a romance novel, characters of opposite sexes are often paired up or pitted against each other in relationships with varying degrees of complication. Achieving differentiation in the tones and spoken words of your male and female characters requires a careful touch, especially if you’re a woman writing a male’s dialogue, and vice versa. In an excerpt from On Writing Romance by Leigh Michaels, the author discusses ways in which you can render the dialogue of your guy or gal protagonist more realistic and effective. GENDER-SPECIFIC DIALOGUE It’s difficult for a writer to create completely convincing dialogue for a character of the opposite gender.

How to Avoid Cliches in Writing: Story Themes To be an original writer, it’s important to learn how to avoid clichés. Many of the same themes are explored often in fiction without being reduced to clichés. You can do the same by understanding what the clichés of your genre are, and how to create your own, varied treatment: On the Concepts of Set-Up and Pay-Off - 2 Set-Up/Pay-Off and a Related Figure Richard Raskin Early in The Return of the Killer Tomatoes (John DeBello, 1988), the character played by George Clooney throws a disc of pizza dough up into the air, pizzaiolo fashion (Figure 1), and the action continues with no shot of the dough redescending. In the final moments of the film, Anthony Starke and Clooney address the audience on the subject of the film's construction (Figures 2-4). While this example does not especially illuminate the nature of the set-up/pay-off figure, it shows that those concepts are so widely used within American film culture that audiences can be expected to understand a gag based on them, at least in a spoof on low-budget cinema. Yet the terms set-up and pay-off do not appear in standard works on film.
