My revisions on Melisma have been so slow in the past couple weeks. I’m doing a bit of an overhaul in the murky middle, and it’s proving difficult. I have to make it interesting while revealing important info. And I started it all because the way it was before was just plain boring.
I’m not sure I’m making it any better.
As I was writing this, I think I realized something. I rely too much on dialogue to reveal things about my world. Maybe that’s why it’s boring. Hmm….
Yeah, my problem is that I have these long scenes with the characters just talking. Granted, some information I don’t think could be revealed any other way. But I think some things can probably be brought out with a scene showing what I’m talking about, which will then require a lot less talking.
I think I may have just solved my problem. Ha. Dang, this whole blogging thing is helpful.
Well, I was going to write about writers block and try to get some words of wisdom on how to beat it. But instead, I think I have a suggestion…go blog! Or pretend to blog. Write out the problem and let your mind work out things through your fingers.
Good luck and have a fabulous weekend!
