Pulses will Race! The No Kiss Blogfest




The No Kiss Blogfest! hosted by Frankie Writes
This is when you get to write a scene or post one from your favourite books, movies, and TV shows that show the almost kiss: the rising, crushing, excruciating, longing, tension that comes from when two characters get oh-so-close to kissing that you can just feel it....and then...they don't!


~ MY ENTRY ~
The idea came from a M&B MS that I wrote in 1996. I have since rewritten it for this piece.

  1. Should be an interesting term!

    I loved the line "Hoping her cheeks hadn't flushed as crimson as her thoughts had been." Great stuff Madeleine.

    Congrats on your 200 followers!

  2. 200 followers? Yay for you! That is awesome, and it demonstrates what a warm and wonderful person you are.

    Ooo . . .the almost kiss. You can feel the sexual tension fizzing through the whole scene. Loved it!

  13. LOL! Yes I am glad some of you felt for poor Plasticene Pete, too.
    Glad it got your pulses racing. I enjoyed adding the humour, too. I always wonder at romance scripts where the man and woman only argue and then become passionate, you wonder how they ever get it together if they hate each other so much. ;O)
