Today’s prompt is all about the intimate. It is time for your character, to have a physical moment with another. It is time for a kiss!
The setting is, as always, pretty much yours to choose. It could be at the end of an evening out, or a chance meeting. It could be following a heated argument, or the realisation that there could be something more from two friends as they quietly sit and talk.
The main focus though is your description of the first physical contact. How does your character feel as they, or the person opposite, move forward and begin the kiss? Describe the physical sensations that pass through your body, and the feelings and thoughts that run through your mind. Does the action bring back happy, or sad, memories of pervious kisses? Is this the first kiss ever? What hopes of the future does this kiss bring?
If you are using these prompts for fantasy ideas, then who is it you are kissing? Is the kiss shared with the same ‘species’? If your character is alone, perhaps in space, then the kiss will be a remembered one. What if your spacefaring character is with others on the spaceship? Will a kiss cause problems for the other crew members?
Enjoy this prompt, and enjoy your kiss. Feel free to take the kiss further if you want. One kiss may lead to another, and another, and then… well you get the idea!
Put pen to paper or finger to keyboard and write. Draw on your memories, the emotions, the sensations that you have and write. There is no minimum or maximum word count, just write and see where your creativity leads you. We’ll have another creative writing prompt to inspire and develop the writing habit tomorrow.
