I was getting pretty frustrated with the whole 'I have nothing to write' thing but I'm figuring there is some sort of pattern here and I just need to ride it out.
So, I did some editing instead.
Not quite as satisfying as getting a few pages written but still proactive.
I may know what the problem is.
As I mentioned before I am at the point where my two characters are going to finally get to do more than kiss! YEAH!
In the first book there was so much fiery passion up to this point that it was easy to get them to bed. It was a moral imperative!
This one isn't so clear cut.
They have been a little luke warm with each other and I'm wondering if I have to go back and ramp things up a bit to make it more believable.
I guess I was going for more romantic in this story but I'm not sure I'm up for that.
Yes, I know it's a 'romance' novel but it doesn't have to be all flowery and gross.
I like the 'throw them up against the wall' kind of thing most of the time.
Not saying there isn't situations that call for sweetness and light, there is, but I don't think this is one of them.
I guess I prefer to write the frantic moments.
When they need each other so bad it's tangible.
When the heat in the room causes furniture to combust.
When the feel of skin on skin causes the world to stop rotating and gravity ceases to exist.
I'm not feeling any of that at this point and I think that might be causing my writing dilemma.
I'll have to go back and see if I can add some spice so that these two characters don't have to wait any longer and I can get back to work.
