I Hardly Knew Thee

Still writing my opening scene to a pet project. I am still struggling with character interactions within the scene. Consequently, the scene is running long.

I am like a plane circling the airport. I either can’t get cleared for landing or I don’t know how to bring this thing in for a landing.

It’s because I don’t yet fully know my characters. Not knowing them fully means I don’t know how they think, how they will naturally act, and certainly I don’t know how they will react.

So, before I write another word, I need to get to know my characters.

I’m gonna have my people contact their people. We’ll do lunch.
