I’ve printed off your replies for the #HTTS Ultra Surprise — 5 Comments

  1. Description description description! I either get bogged down with trying to count the dust motes floating the air or glaze over the scene so quickly the reader wouldn’t know if the characters were under water, in a desert or in space. I’m trying to find the what the line is between interesting and helpful, and boring.

  2. I also find trying to write decent flashback scenes very difficult to bring into the story and getting really strong and believable dialogue which isn’t over powered with subtext but there is still subtext there.

  3. It’s often said a character has to grow or change as the result of his or her activities during a novel. I have difficulty showing this, especially with mystery and/or thriller stories. I also have difficulty when writing in the third person, when and how much to go outside of a character’s thinking, to state facts about the character or the scene or story. I’d like to stick with just what the character is thinking, but sometimes it seems necessary to tell the reader more.

  4. Chocolate. I have to have my Mindy Mints, especially when I’m writing emotionally stressful stuff.
    I take breaks when the muse fades, but nothing feeds my muse like chocolate!
