Word of the day: Wistful

This is an excellent word for a romance writer to deploy. One of my characters, for example, is feeling this right now. But not to worry — all will end well. :)

“Whatever our souls are made of . . .”

Wuthering Heights“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

 

Isn’t this a swooningly romantic quote from Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights? And I think this image from the 1992 film version starring Ralph Fiennes and Juliet Binoche is pretty amazing, too.

Here’s one of the most truly romantic stories I’ve ever heard.

“Most bachelor parties end with foggy memories, but Michael Craddock will never forget his celebration. Craddock and his friends were staying at a rented cabin in the Tennessee woods when a hungry dog appeared at their door. The group fed the dog and then followed her into the woods, where they found her eight newborn pups. The men got right to work: bathing the puppies and spending their beer fund on kibble. Each groomsman went home with a pup, and Craddock’s fiancee was delighted to meet her new pet.” —via The Week
