The story I'm working on is mostly about the characters, but it does have some action here and there. The problem is that most of my scenes are essentially just meetings between characters. In fact a depressing number of the scenes are actual meetings in conference rooms. While I think the characters are reasonable the work as a whole seems a bit dull. The scenes that are interesting are scenes where things actually happen other than just talk. I suppose that's no surprise. What I need to do is transform some of my talk-only scenes into more action oriented scenes that integrate the talking into a more interesting context. Alas I'm having problems doing that. I realize this is a vague request but I'm wondering if anyone has any advice. Is there a general approach or technique that I should know about that could help me here? I feel like I need a bit of plot creation inspiration but so far it's not happening for me. Thanks!
