As a romance writer, it’s important to pull inspiration from various sources. Movies are fabulous visuals. Writing your heroand heroines first kiss is all important. Your reader must anticipate the up coming contact as much as your characters. She should be longing for it – the undeniable chemistry, colliding with or overcoming some internal obstacle. And when their lips finally meet – magic.
Classic kisses like Rhett and Scarlett in Gone with the Wind or Casablanca’s Rick and Ilisa, make hearts beat a little faster.
Recently, I watched Crazy, Stupid, Love. (Yes, I’m behind on my movies.) Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone steamed up the screen. And I thought – wow – every girl wants to be kissed like that!
Hannah (Emma Stone) just got disappointed by the safe guy, so she goes for the bad boy Jacob (Ryan Gosling). The lighting is a little dark (in a bar), but see what you think.
Here’s to you finding your own inspiration! What on screen kiss makes you want to hunt down your partner and lay one on them? Or go to the computer and write?
