So yah, I suck at first-person POV stories... Oh, and I kinda suck at life, too. But that's beside the point!
Yah, I'm attempting to write a Halloween-themed short story from the character -Stephen CRANE (eh?)- point of view and it starts off really well... But then there's dialogue. I find combining dialogue and FPPOV extremely challenging.
I guess it gets complicated for me at the point where you have to explain that that character just said that and he said it like THAT and whatnot. Cuz I'm really great at dialogue, but really bad at connecting it all... If that makes sense.
"Hey, you wanna catch a movie on Friday?" I said nervously.
"Sure..! Pick me up at eight." answered Becky with a wink.
GAH. I dunno. Maybe I'm just overreacting to it. It could be fine... It seems too simple..
Or it could just be because I haven't written anything except essays in FOREVER..
Meh. How y'all doing?
