As readers, I'm curious:
Which books are most memorable to you when it comes to character interaction?
|I decided to retire Word Count Wednesdays because I don't often bother to post it. |
I still like talking about writing, though, and decided to merge WCW into The Scribbler,
which can be for any writing topics I wish to talk about.
So now I'm stumped for how to flesh out the scene and remembering why I quit. Contemporary novels utilize their own breed of character interaction and dialogue. I feel like this is a weak point of mine. This new scene is driven in this way and I have to come up with a good topic so that the chapter isn't just...meaningless filler. I could just bypass it and talk about it in the past tense, but I feel like this is a scene that can heavily impact the way the characters develop with one another and it's a cop-out if I don't flesh it out. So now I'm struggling to figure out how to do just that and at an impass, so the story has again fallen to the wayside.
I feel like it's time to hit the books and find authors that can turn potentially pointless scenes into something memorable and unique. What books (preferably contemporary, since it's a breed all its own) are your favorites when it comes to character-driven scenes and interactions? Why?
Recommend some stuff to me :)
