I can’t write romance. I can’t write this falling-in-love thing. I barely remember what it felt like to fall in love with my fiancée. As far as I am concerned I always loved him, I just hadn’t met him yet. I can’t draw on my personal experience because I’ve only ever been in two long-term relationships and I can’t even remember what it’s like to fall in love!
I can’t develop two romances at once because quite frankly Tina is aware that the hot guy Lachlan is being a jerkface and she doesn’t want anything to do with him. I feel like I’m being very mean to her when I make her think inappropriate things about the boy! And now that I’ve introduced someone who’s warning her off Lachlan, I can’t see Tina doing anything stupid like actually attending the planned party (second peak event) with him. I must make her more receptive to him!
I just can’t do this. I’m despairing.
I’m trying to tell myself that this is when I’d normally give up on a story and that I just need to keep going, but it’s hard.
Tina has another date with Tengu tomorrow, and they need to get very close very quickly. I want them to be almost dating by the time Lachlan’s party starts, so Tengu has a reason to go all alpha male on him.
Wish me luck!
