When I was in high school, I always dreamed of getting flowers sent to class on Valentine's Day. Alas, it never happened. Actually, I did get two flowers my senior year from two of my closest guy friends, so I guess that counts.
When I met my hubby, we dated for less than a month before we got engaged. Yes, I know. It was super fast. I was so excited to finally have a Valentine for the rest of my life! Little did I know, the one holiday my cute hubby hated the most was VALENTINES DAY! Are you kidding me? I was shocked! And a little disappointed I didn't marry a hopeless romantic like myself. I still got a good one though. He's so funny. Every year he says Valentines Day is a stupid holiday, because he loves me every day. Not just one day a year. But even though he hates it, he still does something extra sweet for me each year. I'm not sure what he'll do today, but I'm sure it will be cute. :)
I love, LOVE. Especially in books. I love reading first kisses and tension between two characters who know they love each other but are too afraid to say it. As for my own writing, sometimes I have a hard time writing kissing scenes because I can't capture the perfect first kiss or the right emotion. It sounds cheesy to me when I go over my scenes, so I end up writing them like ten times I swear.
Do you have a hard time with romantic scenes in your own writing? Do you have a favorite steamy moment in a book? I LOVED Shatter Me. If you've read it, you know exactly which scene I'm talking about. Maybe ... Ha ha. ;)
