I spent most of the day wrangling with chapter three of Wicked Tempation. Each book I write tends to have at least one chapter from hell, and for this book, three is it. I started on this chapter yesterday, and I have been fighting it tooth and nail ever since.
There's a bit of dialoge I cannot take out. See, the plot hinges on it. If I take this part out, my story falls apart. But when I rewrote the beginning this past time, it cut out the bridge between the action and this section of dialogue, so now I've got to find a new way to make this scene work.
I've decided this afternoon I'm going to have to add in more dialoge and end chapter two a bit differently. Okay, so it's not the monumental task I thought it was going to be, and it enhances the reason my hero has to be pissed with the heroine. But oi, what a job this has been!
On the bright side, once this chapter is plugged (all the story holes filled in) I'll technically be finished with the book. *angelic music here* With that out of the way I'll be able to focus on polishing for submission.
