U is for Unveiling....

.... a blogfest!

Back in February, Dani @ Entertaining Interests and I began talking about hosting a blogfest. We passed ideas back and forth until we finally came up with the perfect one.

First Fight/First Kiss Blogfest

Why is it perfect?

While Dani’s more into “let’s kick some butt” scenes and has a hard time finding her inner love, I dig the “kissing, be still my beating heart" moments. That’s not to say I don’t like writing fight scenes, because I do. It’s just that the love scenes are my favorite to read and write.
This blogfest forces many of us to work on our not-so-favorite scenes and make them shine.

Also, what happens after a good argument? - Making up!

Share your 1st FIGHT and 1st KISS scenes in your MS’s or WIP’s.
If you’re not a writer, please share with us your real life firsts. We want to read and experience them all!

The First Fight/First Kiss blogfest will go as such:
  • Post 1 will be on Tuesday, June 12 - Share with us your 1st FIGHT scene on your blog. It can be a lovers spat ...or a battle scene ...or a classic fist fight. It can be physical or verbal, fists or magic. Whatever you want to share.
  • Post 2 will be on Thursday, June 14 - Share with us your 1st KISS scene on your blog. It can be a peck on the cheek or a full fledge kissing session. Whatever you would like to tell us.

  2. Hmm, what story to use ... shall I creep people out with my lizardpeople?

    Yes. I shall. ^_^

    1. Lizardpeople... Awesome!!! Looking forward to reading your work! :)

  3. This sounds like a fun blogfest. Is a battle scene acceptable for a fight scene, or does it have to be a one-on-one altercation?

    1. We love battle scenes! Totally acceptable. In fact, I'll go add that in the deets above. Thanks so much! :)

  4. Thanks Jackie! This is so exciting!!

  5. Thanks Jackie! Thought I would add a male perspective to this hop.
