Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This Week's Topic:
Compare your first kiss with your favorite character's first kiss!
Hmmm. Uh, is it terrible that I'm not sure I remember my first kiss? I mean, I remember the first kiss with what I consider a "real" boyfriend... but technically I think my first kiss was on a dare with a neighbor.
I don't think I've read anyone lauding the magic of a "first kiss on a dare with a neighbor". That's probably because these kinds of kisses are by their very nature quick, awkward, and not all that passionate.
As you are probably tired of me mentioning, some of my favorite books are old, and therefore the MCs have passion, but not necessarily immediate physical passion. Jane Eyre, the second Mrs. deWinter in Rebecca-- these girls had more complicated romances. I think also, I didn't read these books for the physical passion. It's probably there, but I didn't really note it. There's just so much else going on.
Please tell me, is there an awkward "first kiss on a dare with a neighbor" scene that I'm missing?
I need to know about it!
