NOT MANY SYNONYMS FOR KISSING
Posted on October 30, 2012
I swear, Ned Firebreak is a tame book for all ages. I keep telling myself this even as I write an entire chapter where our hero and heroine escape using the power of puckering up. As I write the chapter where Ned takes advantage of a pun spell that allows him to fly by the seat of romance, and escape certain death through some innocent smooches, I began to realize there are very few synonyms for kiss.
Wow, this book is certainly stretching me as a writer. I set out to write a story with high adventure and loads of dragon fighting and it's turning out to be a fantasy romance that I am certain will enthrall even the stubbornest, most hardened boys out there.
Seriously, this is a princess book for both princes and princesses. And gregarious animated trees too! I'm certain to have a lock on any literate vegetation out there. My tree sidekick is one lively plant.
Anyway, I have to go finish the scene and make sure Ned and Lil keep their escape to just minor lip-smacking.
