Hey y'all, I'm new to the forums and I've been scratching my head about an idea for a while now but I'm having a tough time getting it to form into something substantial. The jist: A young man and a woman meet on an airplane. They hit it off and chat the entire flight to their connecting city. During the connection they have lunch together and exchange numbers before going their separate ways. I'd like to follow their respective journey apart for an extended period of time... say six months (I'm not sure yet) until they eventually see each other again. So here's my problem. I don't want to write a strictly romance novel but I obviously want this idea to flow and follow a romantic plot. Ideally, my characters would change and grow along the road to their second meeting in the end. That being said, I'm having a hard time writing conflict into the story. I don't want them to be flat and wooden. And the conflict my brain seems to want to concoct is pretty heavy and I can't figure out how to seamlessly sew it into the overall plotline. Any tips or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
