Hey, Lydia! Question: for the book I'm writing, one of my characters is going to propose (cue emotional music). I have almost every other scene done but this one, and it's driving me crazy, because even though I know it's gonna happen, I have no idea how it should proceed. Where do you get ideas and inspiration for writing scenes like that?

Finding You will be in actually-printed-on-dead-tree format?!?! AhhhhH! Lydia, congratulations! I'm so excited for you! (Also for the opportunity to have an actual hardcopy to hoist over my head when telling people what books they really need to read. Good old visual cues.)

Hi Lydia, it's Lexi :) I added about 80 pages to my sci-fy romance novel, "Your Gravity," and it would be really helpful to get some feedback. If you have the time to browse a few chapters, I would really appreciate it :) Here's the link: Thanks!
