I think I have a solution to your problem HPF. Find kissing scenes written in books you actually like (I.E Uglies series), look at how that writer tackled their scenes look at what you ther reader finds not good or missing things you think should be there and use that as a base for your scene. It's a lot easier to see how something should be done by see how it shouldn't be done rather than trying to do it from scratch.

i like kissing scenes(i hate the 'and they kissed' ones) and i love romance and stuff in novels. it helps keep my attention.
im reading betrayed(and audio-reading tvd awakening) and so far its awesome. neferet is starting to show the evilness i knew was in her, and aphrodite is starting to be less of a 'hag from hell,' as zoey and her friends put it. i like the thing with zoey and loren, but i prefer erik night, hes way awesomer and more age-appropriate for zoey.such an awesome book.

I always skip the kiss scenes in books because they're boring. And I hate reading them. I dunno why I wrote romance in my no vel, but now I'm in too deep. I'll try what you said, but it's still going to be tricky.

Hate kissing scenes. I hate romance of all kinds in books, so it's really hard to find something decent to read.

The books are no good. They're not even books.

I think you should read Another Faust by Daniel and Dina Nayeri.  I don't think there's any kissing and very little if any romance that I remember. It's about 5 children who just disappear from their own lives around the world and no one seems to notice when they return years later at an elite private school with a very shady looking Nanny/tutor Madame Vileroy. It's based on the Faust myths about selling your soul and it was amazing.

I'll look into that. Unfortunately, my school library is mostly historical fiction, so I'll have to hunt around a bit.

It's in the AR system if your school uses that(most schools do), it was really a diamond in the rough, I found it surrounded by mindless supernatural romances.

Well, while I was reading, I did. But then in the end I just... didn't. Reading back through the first two books, I realized who would've been utterly perfect for Katniss... Cinna!


Holy bajeezus, I said that when I first read The Hunger Games! They all laughed at me  :'(

I apologize for leaving the current topic. You can do it, HPF! Keep it simple and go with your instincts.
