#ROW80 Week 10 Sunday Check-in

Oh dear… I haven’t had much time for writing this week, managing to get some only tonight, and not using it for my edits of “Coming Out”.
Instead, I spend around 30 to 45 minutes writing on “His Warrior”. I feel I have still done something productive.

I am currently going through “Coming Out” and developing all the scenes that need it. The problem I face usually is that I can’t “visualize” the scene I want to work on.
What I do, when it works, is watching the scene in my mind, listening to the characters, just like if it was a film.
But, if I can’t visualize it, how can I describe it and fit the dialogues?
I am open to suggestions!

    Is there any part of the scene you can visualize? Even a small section could get your mind going. Cathryn’s idea is very good too.

    Thanks for your suggestions and comments!

    That’s the thing, I can see parts, but not the whole thing.
    I’ve place marked it with a brief description, but now I’m stuck on that and can’t seem to get past it.
    I have managed it on other scenes though, so I’m guessing it just wasn’t the right scene at the right time maybe.

    both sugestions above have worked for me – I’m an untidy writer in that I will write any scene that sugests itself so, if I can’t get a scene in my head I just move on to another somewhere else – if it’s not clear in my head I don’t linger – not everyone is happy with that but it works for me

    good luck and keep smiling
