I'm still having problems with my story. The hero's motivation for doing something that the story demands is very slippery. He's a serious guy and I just can't see him doing this puff piece interview that the heroine needs him to do.
And the heroine is supposed to be charming and driven, desperate for success. One of my CP's says she sounds stupid and she likes the fact that Izzy rhymes with Dizzy - which describes her well. Ouch.
Actually the whole premise of the story is starting to sound silly. Since I'm only on Ch 2, this is the time to change or ditch it. I've already reworked my hero's backstory and occupation but I think my heroine needs a few extra IQ points.
And Desires are serious and intense, not frivolous and fun.
