Hi Y’all. I got behind last week on my blogging with family and so much outside work to do. Hubby and I are trying to get this jungle of garden and my rose garden back under control for the weeds. I will let you know if we win or not LOL.
I missed last weeks post on the letter K so this week I am doing K and L, which is kinda good since two of the words fit together quite well.
For K I have kind and the derivatives, kindly and kindness. I like a character that is kind and has a good heart or a broken hero that is lost and needs a boost to the seat of his pants to get back to that point. He may not have anything kid to say to anyone like a crotchety old man LOL.
Kids can be an important part of a story in so many ways. They can be catalysts for a characters behavior, a plot if one is missing or ill or if a character wants one or not in their lives.
Then there is Kiss ( not the old rock band) but a kiss. A romance isn’t a romance without Kissing, which brings me to L
Love is the first word that springs to mind and one of the most important in romance.
Libation is a cool L word . This can be used in paranormal romance as an act of pouring out a liquid to a God or Deity such as a sacrifice. This is great for paranormal stories. For regular romance it works as well. It can refer to consuming alcohol and would work in both contemporary and historical fiction.
Lark. A lark is a bird. But it can also mean on a whim.
Late. Nt good if you are on a deadline!
Last but not Least ( see that…a twofor!) life. A good story needs to resemble life in some form. even though it is fiction it needs to make sense. Life is important to characters. what they do for a living, how they live, where they live, what they live for. All of this makes a story.
I hope you enjoyed the double post. Is there any K or L words you like? What do you do when Life gets you down?
