Unrequited Love

Write about a character deeply in love with someone who doesn’t love them back.

Switch between your character’s longing and the harsh reality of their unrequited love. This love can be platonic, romantic, or familial. The complexity of such a situation—if treated with delicacy—can make for a very compelling and poignant drama. Delve into their internal conflict, hope, rejection, and heartbreak. Your exploration should highlight the character’s emotional journey and will elicit compassion from your readers.
