Mr. Knight

A crown princess searches for her Mr. Right.

Hi Laura! I'm in your group and also found it a really difficult combination. I spent a long time trying to wrap my brain around placing an almost medieval-seeming genre with a very modern setting. I scrapped my initial idea two times and started two other story ideas only to toss those and go back to a version of my original. Whew! I've never been that indecisive about a plot. How did the process go for you?
