That's the only explanation for her fickle behaviour. Seriously, the witch has it out for me. She wants blood. My blood. Not only is she uncooperative when I need her to work, she decides she wants to work when I can't!
Weekend One: 3500 words. Started the story, everything went smoothly. Yay!
Weekend Two: 500ish words. Struggled a lot with writing because of personal matters going on.
Weekend Three (last weekend): I managed to make it through the beginning of a scene that has been making me pull my hair in frustration. The problem was, I had a very specific image of how the scene was to begin, but I just couldn't get it on paper. But I finally got it down! WOO!
After that, I needed to have some information sprinkled in about how my hero William arrived in the Holy Land. I did not want to include him getting there or him searching for my heroine Adeena for weeks, because quite honestly, it wasn't important enough of a scene to put in. It would have slowed the whole thing down. However, I do need to include the information somehow, so that my readers aren't like, "HUH? How did he get there?!"
So I decided on some internal dialogue (ID). Normally ID isn't hard for me, but for this one I didn't want to make it seem like I was telling the reader everything. I wanted it to be completely natural.
So, how are your stories coming along? Do you have any advice for working with internal dialogue? Are there some things you just hate reading in ID? etc...
