I'm writing, for the first time, in the first person. It's a little awkward for me, but necessary for this particular story. What I am finding is that I am slipping way too much into writing internal monologue or emotion to convey the story when I really need to be using more dialogue and action. It's almost like this thing is turning into a really long letter, which I am trying to avoid. I catch myself, and rewrite, but it's not really coming out how I would like, mainly because I still get stuck on the protagonist's internal process. Can anyone give any tips to help me break out of this cycle? Thanks.
