Official Kissing Day Blogfest

Ok, so as I perused my fellow bloggers' pages, I noticed that today is apparently Official Kissing Day Blogfest. All in all, I believe it points us, as writers, toward a topic of blogging which should involve something or all to do with kissing. So, here's my little blurb. I threw it together just so I could say I played along. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint, but honestly I'm not too sure about my romance writing skill.... Be gentle.

Here's a quote from a scene which I'll intentionally put into my prequel to Trueborn.

“Come closer,” ordered Brenna with her silky voice. Her words frolicked with authority and kindness alike.

Vallen stepped forward keeping his eyes to the ground. His senses screamed with intensity as he breathed in her scent. The aroma of costly perfumes wafted off her pale skin and found refuge in Vallen. His heart beat faster with each word she spoke.

“It is not permitted for me to be here my lady,” he countered.

Suddenly, Brenna’s soft fingertips guided Vallen’s chin upward. The two held each others’ gaze. Vallen tried to look away, but just couldn't bring his eyes to obedience.

“Please,” she began, “tell me more of yourself, but do not speak to me as you should; speak to me as you are free.”

“If I would be free to speak, then let me say what is in my heart?” Vallen waited for her to agree.

“Please do.”

Without hesitation Vallen stood from bended knee and pulled Brenna’s body toward his own. Their lips touched in an effortless attraction toward one another. With one hand, Vallen held the small of her back while his other hand embraced her upper neck. Their hearts sped as the world around them disappeared amidst the symphony of their passion.

-------------------------------Ok, I found the rules here---------------------------------

Here is what to do if you want to participate in the Official Kissing Day Blogfest:

1. Write a post telling about the Official Kissing Day Blogfest. This way more writer/bloggers will get the word and be able to participate on Monday, Dec. 21st.

2. Tweet about it, using the hash tag: #kissingdayblogfest (I don't know if this will help get the word out, but I thought it might be fun to try.)

3. On Monday, December 21st, post on your blog an excerpt from your current WIP, or write a new scene that spotlights a kiss or an "almost kiss".

4. If you are not a writer, or are uncomfortable sharing your work online, post your favorite kissing scene or almost-kissing scene from any book or movie.

**Please note that you do NOT have to do #1 or #2 to participate. I was trying to think of a way to get more writers to join in on the fun, but it is NOT mandatory! Just post your kissing scene on Monday for our reading pleasure!

The official Kissing Day Blogfest is hosted over at Making A Dream Become Reality. If you want to participate, hop on over and add the link to her page so we can all enjoy which kissing scene is your favorite!

Very nice Void - fun to get a guys point of view of a kiss. I was surprised that she seemed to be the one in control.

David J. West said...

I didn't even know it was blog kiss day until a couple hours ago-whoops.

Eh I still probably wouldn't have posted about it.

well maybe, the most signifigant kiss in my forthcoming novel is all about seduction to get information about a coming invasion of conquest.

Voidwalker said...

Mary: She "Thinks" she's in control because of her status, but if she only knew who he really was, she'd melt into a spiral of insignificance.

David: You crack me up my man. Seduction kisses for information count. Throw it up on the blog there :)

Bane of Anubis said...

Can we make it Snogging Day Blogfest instead? That way my insecure male ego won't feel as emasculated?

Natalie said...

Ah see, you can do romance!

Bane's comment made me laugh!

Voidwalker said...

Bane: LOL. I won't tell anyone if you don't participate.

Natalie: Thanks, I look at this as an opportunity to dive in and get better at something I'm not so good at right now.

Diana Paz said...

Oh loved this. My favorite was when they held each other's gazes... heart fluttering over here!

Girl with One Eye said...

Oh yeah baby, he was speaking with his lips alright. Permission to speak freely anytime. Grrr...Very delicious Void, me likey.

M. Gray said...

Aww, I love the romance. :) Thanks for sharing!! Wish I had done something... 1 1/2 hours left in the day...

Charles Gramlich said...

I better go kiss Lana first.

Voidwalker said...

Diana: Funny, how all it takes is a look sometimes. :)

GWOE: Thanks for the compliment. By the way, I think there's a kissing addict anonymous group that meets on Wednesday evenings, I'm going to give them your number :P j/k

M. Gray: Thanks! Nice of you to stop by and comment. I love new visitors!!

Charles: Yes sir, you must kisseth your loved one, then back to writing :)

Julie said...
