It’s Friday again. Time for a blog post. Only problem is, I didn’t prepare one ahead of time and this morning, I’m facing several hours of work.
You guys are still hung over from New Year’s anyway, right? 🙂
I will say I’ve been writing and am over a third of the way through the Weatherboy sequel. It feels okay so far. Things are moving at their usual Fenraven speed. Heh.
It’s hard, almost impossible for me to write emotion-laden scenes full of internal dialog. Bores me to death, especially when it centers around family. No idea why that is except perhaps my own family was dysfunctional enough I don’t want to revisit it even in fiction.
For the writers: are there scenes you despise writing, sometimes to the point of avoiding them altogether?
I like action, I like progress, I like lots of dialog and limited narrative. I like it when things happen. The story should sail along at nearly breakneck speed to keep me interested.
But to grow as a writer, I have to tackle the emotional crap more often. I can write it in my head, but getting it “on paper” is difficult.
And just because I’m not comfortable writing it doesn’t mean I don’t like reading it. Some authors have no problem detailing emotional interaction in a way that is interesting. I envy them.
Time to get to work. Have a great weekend. Monday, that horrible long stretch without a paid day off begins for those of you with an EDJ. You have my sympathy. I despised this time of year. Additionally, when I lived up north, it was cold and nasty outside, and we still had months of winter to get through.
I suffered from SAD then. I don’t now. 🙂
