Mean things done to characters: I haven't got any further with their sex scene!

Oh, dear. The story seems to be stuck and it isn't the story's fault this time.

I think it's performance anxiety. (Stop sniggering at the back there!)

You see I haven't written a sex scene for an awful long time. In Moving a Mountain, the characters kept trying to have sex, but were constantly being interrupted.

There's nothing for it, I'll have to engage low ratio 4-wheel drive to get this story moving again, ie I need to revert to hand writing. Perhaps that way I'll get some traction on the scene.
