So, while I was doing some online research for my NaNoWriMo project (which is going verrrry slowly, but at least I have a plan!), I came across a most compelling item.
It's a list of the Sexiest Words in the World, as put together by the Calgary Association of the Romance Writers of America.
Unfortunately for Writer Me, these words aren't really helpful for my project, which has as its main character a 12-year-old girl in 1973. And it's not THAT kind of story anyhoo.
However, the list has piqued my interest. Shocking. And will be a good reference for later projects.
Wanna see the list? Of course you do.
As the only format in which I could find it was a PDF, I did a little copy/paste action and put it here, on my tester/auxiliary blog for your perusal.
Take a look -- it's rather extensive. But if you're like me, some words stand out more than others, at least in the context of being "sexy."
Here's my Top 10 words from the list, in no particular order (I just know you were wondering what they might be...)
Is it a little warm in here, or is it just me...
If you're so inclined, feel free to share your faves from the list. There are no wrong answers (gotta love that kind of exercise) and I can guarantee you'll find it fun. Or something.
