My current work in progress is a slow burn romance between two characters who do not believe in love in their own way. MC simply does not believe in it due to bad experiences being proven, and LI (Love Interest) has sworn off any romance relation.
I've gone through multiple stages of writing grief, causing me to edit—add, subtract, split—many chapters. And honestly, I've found my peace space with previous ones. But flaw is, current chapter seems to have sped up too quickly. Other chapters don't signify any romance, but this one suddenly does. This is because I noticed that I wasn't sure how to introduce the two characters getting along. But if I were to remove and replace this chapter, I feel stuck. What are ways to slow down a plot?
