Now that I've reworked my WIP (cutting chaff, tightening plot lines, etc) I've found myself with some gaps between events where I need a scene or two to get the story from point A to point B. I know how I want to fill them, but ugh, I'm finding one in particular very hard to write. I need a scene between my two MCs that helps them get to know each other. They've met before, did some stuff, but now they're embarking on a journey together. Before this neither of them was sure they'd really have anything to do with each other after the previously mentioned stuff was done. Now they both know, and mostly accept, they're in it for the long haul together. They're travelling by horseback and stop to camp for the night. This is where they start sharing some of their personal info with each other. I know the main points I want them to reveal to the other, and what I want them to still hold back. My problem is, every time I write it and then reread it I find I'm writing their conversation and interactions as being far too, well, friendly. They should be still unsure, perhaps nervous, not so open with the other, but I've been with these two so long, and have written soooooo much after this that has them as solid friends/partners that I can't seem to rewind my headspace back to the 'growth' part of their relationship. Any advice on how to get me to see them as virtual strangers to each other again?
