A cross-post: A conversation on Fiction, or a fictional conversation…

Have you ever wished, after a good long talk, you had thought to record it? There’s a specific quality to the way we express ourselves in conversation, to the spacing and timing of what gets said, when, and how. In fiction it is always a wonder to read a conversation and have it ring true. As a writer it’s always a prayer, more than a hope with just a little hint of desperation beneath it, that we’ll be able to manage it, at least a little bit, and get something down with that ebb and flow, with the twists and turns, with the unpredictability of conversation.

Talking about writing this noon with a good friend and careful reader – and solid writer too! We talked about the conversations involved in writing fiction.
