Just Kiss Already!

Happy Valentines Day!

Christina at Write Brained and Stina Lindenblatt  are holding this Just Kiss Already Blogfest.
Is it Getting Hot in Here?
is holding a kiss scene fest.

As you may probably know I've already enjoyed doing an Almost Kiss excerpt for Frankie's Blogfest and so I thought  'What the hell I can go all the way this time, why not?
After researching writing kissing scenes I have produced my excerpt for you below:

Funnily enough my Almost Kiss is a lot more steamy.

So do kiss scenes embarrass you?
Do you like writing them or do you avoid them like the plague?
Check out my Kissing With Confidence post.

“Awh honey, I just need a little ickle, kissie wissie from you for the Blogfest ” Maud coaxed.
“No chance!” Henry replied.

  10. Your's was a nice kissing scene. I know I've written some, but now I can't recall any of them specifically. They must not have been very memorable.
    I did remember to send a thank you your way on my blog today.

  11. This is just lovely - her nervousness, how gentle he is with her. Great stuff! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful v-day! Oh, and to answer - kissing scenes don't embarrass me, there's something so wonderful about a kiss, especially first kisses. Love them! :)

  13. Sweet kissing scene.

    Kissing scenes only embarrass me if I have to read them aloud.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I enjoyed your kissing scene and microfiction.

    I don't mind writing kissing scenes and make sure I'm by myself when I read them out loud to edit, just in case they're not as good as they could be.

  15. Kissing scenes don't embarass me! I love them!

    Great job!

  16. I must be getting really old, all I could see was the clay mud all over them! LOL! Loved the scene you set up and the great follow through!

  19. That was lovely! I could smell the cold clay.
    I've only written a teeny quick kiss, I'm gearing up for a real humdinger soon!

    Love the microfiction too :-)

  20. This was very nice, and how refreshingly different to have a romantic male lead who is blind. I liked how he put her hand to his heart, and then his to hers, and then the kiss. Lovely. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. How could someone ignore such pleading...loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. ickle - cute! A little surprised he said no!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I liked your Kissing entry. Happy Valentine's Day.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the fact that he's blind and probably the only person to ever really see her. This was unbelievably sweet!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Your kissing entry is terrific!

    Love your microfiction. Henry's being quite the stick-in-the-mud!

  28. I'm pleased you enjoyed my MM and my Just Kiss entry. BLESS YOU EVERYONE!

    Ms. Daisy it's a bit like Ghost with the pottery clay scene LOL!

    Old Kitty, yes I had that song playing in my head afterwards, though when I checked out the video clip, it seemed even more corney than when I watched in it in the 1980's!

    Lisa, Sonia, Jinksy, Diane, Peggy Yes Henry was just being a tease really. Playing hard to get.

  29. Cold clay and hot interaction. You crafted the nervous tension well :)

  30. This was fantastic. I love your writing it's beautiful for Valentines Day!

  31. Lovely post :0) and Happy Valentine's Day!

  32. Great scene! Love your blog and now following! I am a fellow crusader, so please stop by if you get a chance :) Nice to meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah, I guess they do. I wonder how the actors and actresses feel about all the rehearsal of a big long dramatic kiss. Do they practice together, or just show up and do it because its business?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Goodness, I had to scroll forever to reach the comment box! :) I write MG with male MCs, so there's not much kissing going on. But then, I don't think I'd know how to write a kiss scene very well. You, on the other hand, clearly know what you're doing!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't find it embarrassing to write kissing scenes. What I find embarrassing is the thought of who might read them one day (like, ahem, parents or grandparents! I mean, come on, that's a little awkward!).
    Good scene here. Real, deeper emotion, not just kissing.
