Alright, fellow group members, I am in dire need of some encouragement/advice.|
*prepares to tell life story*
So, basically, I'm a plot-driven writer, yes? I typically have an end goal in mind, a process to get there, what chapter is going to contain what pivotal plot-point and the relationship just gets weaved in between. Sometimes I use the plot as the relationship instigator, sometimes they're separate.
However, my muses are demanding a character (relationship) driven story. And I'm just fine with that. I've got the steps and thoughts and development of J/R all laid out in my head the same way I typically do plot.
Only problem is...I can't see to create a plot. No action. No...anything, besides emotions and a few scenes. And I'm especially having problems seeing Sheppard in a noncommand position like my prompt is. I realize I can create a situation where, despite not being in the close working relationship of CMO and CSO, J&R get together...but nothing's coming to me. There's just no movement forward. And I really don't want lengthy exposition for 40,000 words and neither does anyone else.
I've got a week and a half of (fairly) uninterrupted time and I need to punch out like 20,000 words or so, but I'm completely at a loss.
