I was writing a wedding kiss scene in my first book, and for the life of me, I could not remember what they called a certain type of kiss that I saw in my mind. Now, don’t get me wrong, I write memorable kiss scenes that drip with attraction and intimacy. But, I needed a dramatic flair for this scene and I needed the name.
So, I googled types of kisses, and got definitions of kisses, which didn’t help me at all. I just needed the name of a kiss. Then I keyed in the search bar – fancy wedding kisses – and hoped that I would not hit some shocking website that put me on the FBI watch list. Eek.
Then immediately my computer monitor filled with fabulous pictures of couples off the Brides website. I scrolled through them and found the one for my description.
It was entitled The Dip.
Now, this is what I needed. A dip. Beautiful. Dramatic. He’s got her.
But then I had to show you the next dip picture. He is one happy man.
He wasn’t going to let her get away and he was celebrating. Smile.
But then, after I found what I needed I saw two other pictures of kisses that showed a depth of intimacy that was amazingly beautiful in a totally different way. They had the touch and the kiss. These are MY favorites and already in my books.
Sometimes a picture speaks louder than words.
Now, tell me, out of all these kisses, which one is your favorite?
