30 Days of Writing: Day #20

20. What are your favorite character interactions to write?

Conversations. I like writing dialog and there’s an interesting challenge to integrating action into character conversations. Alternately, I hate writing fight scenes. They never contain conversation. Sometimes, I think screenwriting would be easier for me. I hear characters more than I see them. My impression of screenwriting is that you write the dialog and sum-up the setting and action to a greater or lesser degree. Can’t do that when writing a novel.

Funnest bit of writing I’ve done lately? The phone conversation between Aleister Luck and Cindy/Mr. Schlotz.

Needed a break from 30 Days of Writing while I traveled back to AZ and regrouped. It’s good to be home, even if it is still 100+ degrees here. Regardless, I’m breaking out the Hallowe’en decorations tomorrow.
