I was moving along great on my Civil War romance, Katie Rose, until I came to what I call the mucky middle.
All of a sudden I felt like I was moving too fast toward the first big love scene. Something just didn't feel right and I had to stop.
I reread the manuscript from the beginning and realized what was wrong. I didn't include enough essential scenes to build up to that point. Part of the story was missing.
So, I went back to the drawing board, my outline, to see where I needed to insert scenes as well as different points of view.
After doing that, I went through the manuscript and wrote the scenes. Now, I just have to type them into the file.
Now, hopefully, I should have no more trouble writing the rest of the story.
