Dialogue Goblins VS Descriptions.

When I write I prefer description. Dialogue has been a weak point for me. I might have three or four characters speaking- but trust me when I say my first attempts at dialogue are astonishingly bad. I always have to tweak it to make it stand out like it should and I've learned how to do a more natural flow. I'm always willing to learn.

Tip: Dialogue- use contractions for better flow and less stilted reading.

I'm not real sure why dialogue kills me, but I have a sick sense it might be due to goblins.
 >.> Shifts eyes <.< 
As much as I wish I could avoid dialogue all together- I fear it would be detrimental to my story if I did.
Descriptions flow from me though, they keep going like a waterfall from my brain to pen to page.
Have you learned any dialogue tricks along the way?

Overcome and conquer- or not...~TT~

This last week...

 time died.

 Energy decided it would feed the demons.

Sleep escaped.

Intruders played a game.

This last week days fell apart.

And Then....

I rescued myself.

I built my own day.

I crushed the intruder.

I captured sleep.

I exercised my demons.

But time still died.

Beckoning. TT- Why write

Writing is not a want, it's a need. A burning from within that takes my breath away at the best of times and crushes my soul at the worst. It's both masochist and sadist.

Blank pages call to me and drive me crazy.

I need to see words written down in my handwriting. I need to create characters, worlds, plots, ideas, dialogue. My fingers pull the fiction from my essence and leave me spent on the page…

It's almost better than an orgasm.

I write for me, for fun, to entertain, to play.

It's engraved in my heart.

I write because it's a part of who I am, something I can't turn away. A feeling of fulfillment and loss all wrapped up in pens and pages. Never neatly and always beckoning.
