Dude, Where's My Muse?

So, realizing my Temptation wanna-be that I'm almost 7K words into has no plot sucks. I can't figure out where it was going. I know what she does but what does he do? I know what he looks like, what he sounds like (ah, love basing my characters off him) but just what does this incarnation do... I was thinking wealthy playboy but eh... I just don't know. Its like I took two of my old story ideas and merged them into one and ended up in disaster zone. Maybe I should separate them and see what happens. Great, more work :o)
I think I've learned too much about writing lol I'm questioning conflicts and motivations. Personally I prefer just writing and seeing where it gets me. Plotting makes me feel like I've already written the book so why write it again? I know what happened, what she said, what he did and where they broke up...been there, done that, and both h/H are wearing the t-shirts.
What else to babble about. Finished one of the books I won a few weeks ago. Trish Wylie's HER REAL LIFE HERO. Absolutely great book!! First of hers I've read but I'm going to try and track a couple more of down.
Alright, nuff from me. Its overcast and cool out so I can't seed my last pot but I'll try and attempt some writing on my Bombshell wannabe.
