Challenge


I feel one of my biggest challenges as a writer to be creating dialogue. A lot of my book is written but there isn’t enough dialogue.

Once I finally get the dialogue down I keep analyzing whether or not it is witty, boring, etc. Then I wonder whether or not it is even something the character would say the way it has been said and/or whether or not what is being said is realistic.

The next thing I ponder is whether or not I should be writing the dialogue at all if I’m unsure whether or not it is something the character would say. Part of me feels like I need to discover the characters just as my eventual readers will.

Perhaps this is the one time that I should listen to my friend and “just write.”
