So, in Writer's Workshop, Heimlich VonVictor advises:

"As tempting as it can be to include a romantic sub-plot or gear your story towards a specific gender, it's better not to, because you will appeal to a much larger demographic."

Secret Squirrel suggested putting "in a non-gender specific romantic sub-plot" to liven things up.

So here is your challenge. Write a non-gender specific romantic story of some sort. It can be like an Intro, or a short story, but you MUST be able to read it as a man or a woman, and envision the opposite gender in the other part.

Spelling and grammar DO count. There is one entry per person, and the deadline is October 4, 23:59 SST.

Winner will get a 3 month subscription!

Good luck and happy posting!

Wow, thank you!

This was a wonderful contest and I really enjoyed coming up with an entry, as well as reading everyone else's. It's really not as easy (to write something like this) as a lot of people seem to think it is, as I'm sure the other entrants will agree.

So congratulations to everyone who even tried!!

I said the winner was me! But then i didn't enter, so even though the others agreed *cough* it would have been hard to substantiate. So, congrats Ani.
