Think about it... how often does the storyline of real life hinge on what was actually said (compared to what was done)? But it seems like every single paperback novel I've ever read is rife with dialogue. 90% of the story seems to hinge on interaction between two or more characters with very little description of a character acting alone, and then of course there would be no dialogue when someone is alone. Now, I may be a bit more of a loner than the average person, but I do belive that people do spend a considerable time alone. And does that not mean that life ceases to progress, hence there is no story? I don't think so. What I'm getting at here is that I have a major hanging with my writing because I just don't think in terms of constant interaction and discourse as the main basis of storyline. Am I wrong?
