Right Book, Right Time

I'm wondering if I should be writing this story now. It's soooo slow going, though I have it plotted. I think it might be the chemistry between the characters. I think this because today was a dance and the first kiss and it was just---flat. I'm going to try something else, but if I don't make some good progress next week, I'm going to put it aside and write a straight romance.

I have a month left until school starts and was hoping to have a novel done so I could work on edits as I ease back into my schedule. If I get 1500 words a day, I can do it, but I've only been able to do that a handful of times on this book.

So why are some books slower to write than others? I thought I was prepared, but apparently not.

This is the new thing I'm trying. Okay, one of them.

We've talked about this and I don't have the answer. Sure hope someone else does.

I kept going and I'm happier with it now. Hope it can keep up.
