rachababie asked: Hi! I have a weird question. I have two characters that end up in a relationship by the end of my book, but I`m having trouble figuring out when they get together. I`ve already discarded one scene, but I`m struggling with the new one. How do I work the kiss in so it fits well with the scene? I know some people think if you can`t fit it in you should just cut it, but it`s really important for their development. (They both have to learn to move on from past loves and have a life again)
I can’t really tell you how to work it into the scene without knowing what the scene is, what the characters are like, and really just a lot more about your story in general. What I can tell you is that if you want them to kiss, you just have to find a scene where it would be natural for this to happen. There must be some scene where they’re interacting, where they could lock eyes for a moment and they both just know that they want each other, and one could ask the other, “Can I kiss you?” and boom, they kiss. :)

Be creative with it. This is quite a specific once because you either have to write in third person or somehow work that line into speech. Challenge yourself, you know what you’re good at.
Think outside the box!

my favourite legend from the norse mythology is when a giant steals mjolnir and says he’ll give it back if he can have Freyja as his bride, but she refuses to go so instead Thor dresses up as her and Loki as her handmaiden and then at the wedding the giant places mjolnir in his bride’s (thor) lap and thor reveals himself and kills everybody and if that shouldn’t be made a short film with I don’t know what should
