plus I just can't seem to get started
I think part of my problem is I'm not very excited about this next part, because they'll be separated, as silly as that is. I feel like it's going to be incredibly boring to write, even more boring than the politics.

I almost want to skip it for now and write the part after that, when they finally get down to some serious making out.

Current Mood: bored bored
Current Music: stranger by the day--shades apart

Confucius (or someone from Asia said): "A short time apart fans the flames of passion even more than the newly wed."

The chapter could be very interesting and significant towards developing their relation because Guy and Natalia will be separated for the first time since she came to him. It will be a good chance for them to reflect on how their feelings have changed in so short a time.

That's kind of my plan. After spending time together in constant company, living and eating and doing everything together, when they're apart for a few weeks, they think, "Wow, I missed you more than I thought I would."

We did the long-distance thing, and it sucks, so I know exactly how they'll feel to finally be back together and how it will serve to get them to the next step emotionally/physically.

Yeah, in real life and fiction, you're the expert on long-distance relationships. I forget whether there were phones in Abyss, or carrier pigeons.

Heh, I'm an expert on nothing, I'll be the first to tell you.

There are no phones. Their technology is so weird. They have awesome flying machines, but no phones.

This last part made me laugh because when I was writing my first NaNo novel that is exactly what I did. Whenever I was getting bored of writing something I'd just skip ahead and have the characters make out. (in my defense, i was on a deadline, and you have to fill those pages up with something...lol)

Boring parts are hard to get through, but you have to write them. I think that's why I give up on my stories so much, because I'm great at coming up with ideas and writing certain scenes but when it comes time to fill in...bleh.

Best of luck, you can do it. You have fortitude. :)

I'm terrible at wanting to skip the boring parts. Maybe that's why all of my multi-chapters are forever unfinished. Or maybe because once I got to the making out/porn, I realized that was the only reason I was writing anyway. It's like: 1)many chapters establishing relationship, 2)finally earn the PORN, 3)totally lose interest in writing any more.

I totally suck at establishing relationships. I always wind up rushing through things, lol.

I maybe shouldn't rush things with this new one I'm doing, but these are people who've known each other 15 years, so really how slow do they have to go?
