After this I'm going to have to face the dread ending revisions, yikes.
The whole thing is sitting at 86k at the moment and it's looking like I'll hit 90k when I'm done.
I write conversations out kinda like plays first...withoug quotes or he said then she said stuff
Just like this:
promise. You know I will.
yeah but it's important
Even if it weren't I'd call if you asked
blabbity blah blah...
then I dialogue it, try it on, see if it makes sense and then I add the
"call me" she pleaded, her eyes desperate.
"ok" he said immediately.
"promise"? she didn't think he understood the urgency.
"promise. You know I will" he reassured her with a quick hug.
"yeah but it's important" she hated herself for nagging him.
"Even if it weren't I'd call if you asked" and he meant it.
And she knew he meant it. He always kept his word.
Ok that's how I do dialogue because...that's the only way I can get through it. I too hate it. I'm a describer not a dialoguer!
