Lady character in my first real attempt at a spiritual book: a shy woman of strong faith who gets mixed up with the wrong guy at the right time. Just so happens the guy is a non-believer who wears it on his sleeve – to the point of being obnoxious about it, but oddly finds that he enjoys being around the irritating Ms. Wholesome. Like many women, the main female character eventually comes to see Mr. Wrong’s non-belief as a worthy challenge .. while she’s falling for him, of course.
On vacations, you’re supposed to COMPLETELY get away and stop thinking about work stuff, but if you simply MUST check in at the office, I highly recommend setting up a little something like this:

Being 20 pages into one re-write and then deciding that the storyline needs to be changed around to a significant degree in order to be able to add better character backstories. Sucks when you have several halfway decent scenes already written that you want to try and incorporate into the new storyline but can’t. *SIGH*
