v. ca·noo·dled, ca·noo·dling, ca·noo·dles Informal
To engage in caressing, petting, or lovemaking.
It’s just a great word, and one I’m using in my latest work.
“My heart swells at the thought of canoodling with Maddie somewhere private in the hospital grounds. I can’t risk a public scene of obvious lesbian affection because Mum doubtless knows half the nursing staff here. No, I have to be patient. There’ll be time enough for me and Maddie to canoodle once we’re safely away from prying eyes. Please, God, let there be canoodling.”
– Martha Robinson, Moving Meditation
You’ll be pleased to hear that the first POV character of Book 3 is coming along very nicely. She was giving me a few sleepless nights, originally coming across as incredibly creepy in her obsessiveness with Maddie. I’ve tempered it slightly so she comes across as more of a desperate, lonely girl being led somewhat astray by another desperate, lonely girl. You’ll have to wait for me to finish the book to learn if they actually get to canoodle!
Have a great weekend, hopefully with some canoodling of your own!
