Too Focused

Okay, okay, I think I know what part of the problem is. I’m terrible at description. That’s the main glaring problem with highschool draft of Epic Novel. It’s all very terse, very telly, all action and dialogue. In my current draft, I have really focused on description. Perhaps too much. One compliment I always get is that my characters are good and I know them well. Except, they don’t seem very engaging in Part 2. I spend so much time trying to make my description good that I’m neglecting my strengths—the characters, the plot. In highschool draft, the characters were friends, geniune, and funny, too. They seem awfully drab in current draft. Maybe I can pull some of my stunning lines out of the mess that is highschool draft and insert them into current draft. Maybe they will inspire me.
