The Kissy Bits #12 - Emotional Honesty

The Kissy Bits #12 - Emotional Honesty

New intro!

Since a lot of people have been asking me when I’ll put the Kissy in the Bits, I’ve decided to dedicate the next few shows to the craft of romance in writing.

Is romance really just about making the right noises?
Let’s talk a bit about getting emotional.

Learn about the Stanislavski method of acting

Deep POV gets you there.

Employ all the senses, go into the deepest details. And once you’re there, dig deeper. And once you’ve added as much depth to a scene as you can? Go deeper!

Your love scenes are not interchangeable. They happen in that order for a reason.

Don’t pull your emotional punches. Dig deep. Strike gold. Make emotions matter in your fiction.
