O is for Osculation

Osculation and its attendant repercussions play a not insignificant role in modern fiction--in the romance genre to be sure, but also in many murder mysteries. Tough-as-nails private eyes often engage in osculatory actions in their off hours or after they've offed the awful villains. As a writer, I find I must osculate frequently with my wife in order to keep the details clear in my mind. Of course, an occasional Noodle (see yesterday's blog post) helps as well.

The writer must stay sharp.

I didn't realize this was an adult-content blog!

Noodling often leads to osculation...or is it the other way around?

'I didn't realize this was an adult-content blog!' - LOL!

Now I have The Smiths' 'Oscillate Wildly' in my head.

Now, now. Let's not confuse osculating, which is kissing, with oscillating, which is what fans do.

Does this mean that you're writing a "kiss-and-tell"?
