In my last post, I fretted about the parade of out of town company that could very easily derail my writing progress. Now that Well Beyond Waiting has regained a starring role in my writing time, it has a momentum of its own. I hope to see it through.
My worries completely overlooked the fact that constant toddler activity easily wears out unpracticed visitors. Somehow, the two main attractions that pull me away from writing, my busy kids and frequent overnight guests, effectively neutralize each other.
By noon, they all fall into a pile for nap time, giving me a little space to write.
Unfortunately, I'm struggling with the dialogue. For now I'm just putting down the core of what the character's are trying to say, but it doesn't sound "right" yet when I reread the material aloud. I'm a researcher... a studier... so I'm tempted to chase down the highest reviewed "how to write dialogue" book out there. Spend a few weeks studying up.
But no. Then the momentum would be lost and I'd be out of touch again, just as it has finally taken off. I'll save the research for the next lull in writers energy.
