Having Trouble Writing the Romance Scene in Return of the Aliens

What in the world is going on?  This ought to be a piece of cake since I write romance most of the time, but it’s like I have stage fright on this one.  I don’t get it at all.  I know the words that should be written, but for some reason, I feel like everyone’s reading over my shoulders.  Maybe it’s because I’m aware that a significant portion of people interested in this book are not romance readers.  I’ve gotten emails.  That’s how I know.  But good grief, that doesn’t mean these people don’t enjoy books with a romantic subplot in it.  Maybe I should tell myself this is a romance novel and go for it.  😛

Okay.  Back to writing the scene and stopping the whole procrastination thing.  I’d hope on Facebook and answer comments over there, but I know I’ll get sidetracked and never write this scene.  *sigh*

As a side note on a totally unrelated topic, I’ve posted a poll on my Ruth first draft blog asking people what I should work on in April and May, and so far Shotgun Wedding is winning by four votes.  I never expected it to be this close.  I thought there would be a wide gap between the choices.  The choices were Bride of Second Chances and Shotgun Wedding.
