I finally sat down last night and got to writing! I'm in a "stuck" spot right now and not sure how to get the characters through it but realized that there are quite a few chapters that haven't been fleshed out very well. One in particular could get rather juicy. There's just one problem.
I get stuck on the dialogue! I get the two love-birds together and then I have no...idea...what they should say. It's...awkward. Kind of like my own love life. Then again, mine was a series of unfortunate events. (When I learned that was an actual series name I thought maybe it was a log of someone's dating life because seriously! SO glad I'm married.)
So what do you do to get the conversations going? Do you visualize yourself there? Have an idea ahead of time where it ought to go? What if you just want to establish a bond between the characters? I hate pausing long enough to read a book about writing but I'm willing to take suggestions now.
