Got four pages today–and they went in a totally different direction from any I expected. I wrote myself into a corner. It’s not a bad corner, but I think the only way out is through, and I’m not sure I want to go through this love scene. I may have to though.

It’s not that I don’t like writing love scenes. This one may be a little tricky, but it ought to be fun as well. It’s that I write them so slowly. It takes my page production way down because I want to get them Right and I spend twice as much time weighing words and making sure what they do is actually physically possible. These people aren’t gymnasts. (Though sometimes I think they’d like to be.) And this one is definitely tricky. Very, very tricky.

If they refuse to cooperate unless I let them do this, maybe I can write it, then cut it later… (grumble, grumble) Characters are SO uncooperative…
