While revising D, I realized that I needed another kissing scene to round out the story. Not rounding out through the kissing part itself, but through the events for which the kiss is a catalyst (and not that! Get your minds out of the gutter, people!)
Now, y'all know by know that I feel incredibly awkward while writing kissy scenes. While everyone else on #1K1hr or during other writing blitzes would get excited-- "Yes! I finally got to the kissing!", I dreaded them. But this round of revs, I found myself grinning while editing one of the kisses... and was actually looking forward to the new kissy scene.
I blame my romance writing friends. (And YA! YA writerly people who love the kissy scene writing almost as much as I love glitter. And you know how much I love glitter.) *Oscar the Grouch Look* Why for you do that to me? I was happy with the whole begrudging kissy-scene writer label. Now? Now I still feel goofy... but I enjoy it a whole lot more.
Plus, now I definitely need a boyfriend. Because it would be so much better to practice with him. So much better than making weird, vague hand gestures while driving or in the apartment or (worse of all) in my cubicle during lunch hour to make sure my descriptions of hand and arm and head positions in kissy scenes are physically possible/make sense.
It's All Your Fault.
Thank you :)
