K is for Kiss


I love kisses. The real ones (okay the chocolate as well, but we already covered candy yesterday). They're my favorite part of a book. The romance. The tension. The unrequited love that finds its way into the pages of just about every book I pick up.  Especially those geared towards teens.

Do you remember your first kiss? Or are you trying to forget it? :) Mine was magical. And, okay, a little awkward. I mean, it's the moment girls dream about forever (all the ones I know anyway) and that alone has the potential to make or break it. Forever remembered. Forever haunting.

As in my current WIP.  It started with a kiss scene. Well, it doesn't "start" with a kiss scene, but it was the catalyst to a lot of the angst my protagonist is going through. And boy howdy, what a kiss.  I mean, it changes lives.  Seriously.  None of my other ideas hang so importantly on a kiss. But this one does. Oh the things I share.  :)  Well, you'll just have to read for yourself when it comes out. Not if...when. Because the world needs to experience this kiss. Seriously.

How about you? Any of you have a momentous kiss that changed your life? How about your characters? Do you ever find yourself rewriting your first kiss in your stories?


  1. I do pull on memories of great kisses I've experienced to add to my kiss scenes. They are fun to read and write!

  2. My first kiss with Mrs RJR was framed by T'pau playing "Heart and Soul" in the background. We still flash teenage smiles at each other now if we hear that song !


  3. When my now husband kissed me for the first time, I had a flash forward...and KNEW that I would marry him. That was over 20 years ago. :o)

    Visiting from the A to Z Challenge. Great 'K' post. Happy Wednesday! :o)


Tell me how you really feel. Come on, I Dair YA.
