Last night I started reading Kate Walker's 12 Point Guide to Writing Romance. I've had the book for over a year, but recently I've been struggling with the conflict in my WIP and was hoping the book could help me. As I was reading her discussion about small and large conflicts I realized why I'm struggling with the scene I'm currently writing -- there's not enough conflict. I was trying to wrap the scene up nice and neat but my characters weren't cooperating. It needs something more. I just have to determine where this new conflict will take me and how it will mesh with what I've written already. Come to think of it, whenever I'm having trouble with a scene it's usually because something isn't working. It's so nice when that lightbulb goes off over my head, and I get a momentary flash of insight. Why can't it happen more often? But now that I know there's an issue, I just need to figure out how to fix it. That's a whole different problem!
