Writing tips

I always remember when I was first trying to write, way back when, we had a speaker at the writer’s circle to which I belonged, and talking to her afterwards I told her that I had difficulty in interspersing my dialogue with actions and thoughts. So she suggested that I write the dialogue first like a play and then go back and put everything else in. And it worked. I don’t have that problem any longer, although I do still sometimes add a little more action after-wards when I’m re-reading.

Did anyone else ever suffer from that same problem?

And in case you’re wondering who the speaker was, it was Mary Wibberley. She wrote for HM&B in those days. Does anyone remember her? She also wrote a book on writing called To Writers With Love.
