I would say the most difficult thing for me to learn as a writer is bringing conflict into my characters' lives and making them suffer. I don't have a problem making things tough for them, but I always want to rescue them by the end of the same scene. This does not make for a very interesting story, so I have lots of sticky notes above my computer reminding me to make my characters really suffer.
..... Ummmm, ran out of things to say here.
I talked about the conflict and the resolution and now this post is over. Not very interesting.
I'll set a goal to do better next week. I'm REALLY good at goal setting, which happens to be next week's topic. (Like the tie-in?)
PS Today, Mr. Dickinson and I celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. I wuv u, honey!
