Hi all, So I've been reading a lot of 1st person novels as I am writing one atm. And what I notice is that most of them have pages and pages of the narrator just talking to themselves a lot of the time and not pages of dialogue. Now, I won't say my novel has pages of dialogue but I feel that my novel has quite a bit (Most conversations with important characters that add to the plot)...I only have a few times where there's pages and pages of my MC just talking to himself and about his feelings. It makes me wonder: Am I doing this whole first person thing wrong? Am I doing exposition through dialogue too much and not enough through the actual narrator? I feel that this could be because my character is new in his setting and is meeting a lot of new people, thus why there is quite a bit of dialogue. But I'm not sure that even with that, there should pages of dialogue sometimes...hmm. Sorry if this is hard to understand! But thank you in advance for any advice given.
