Writing Romance A-Z ~~Letter J

Published by Cathy Brockman on

Welcome back to Writing Romance A-Z. Today’s letter  is J.

The first word that comes to mind is joyous.

I like jaunty too. It means to have a self-confident air or buoyant.  A person can wear a jaunty expression or wear a hat at a jaunty angle. I think this works really well in historical fiction especially the 1920’s or 1940’s

Joyful, Joyous, Jovial, Jubilant are all basically the same. Nice happy words’

Juicy is a fun word it can be a juicy steak or a juicy rendezvous. I love this one.

Now for a funny one. Junk. It doesn’t have to be trash. Though a character that is a hoarder would be fun.  Junk can also be a word for well you know a man’s junk.(wink).

Do you have a favorite J word?

Joy is an emotion I strive for. I like the word juxtaposition.
