I’ve decided to go back and re-read and re-write parts of Chapter 2 as necessary. I’m not sure if this is a good idea or not. But I figured that its better to go back to check it out rather than to keep writing on a tangent that might not be good. I found one gap where I think some more information about one of the main characters and about the few weeks of time I skipped could be covered.
So as the day is drawing to a close, I hope that tomorrow brings more progress as my page count still stands at 17.
What I’m wondering now is, is my writing becoming too descriptive rather than focusing on the action? I feel like there should be some description in the beginning to get it rolling. But can how can you write a story without having paragraphs of narration rather than dialogue?
That’s my problem: narration versus dialogue? When should you use one and when should you use the other?
