Working on final draft. Been at it for a few years. It's a self reflexive book about a writer having written a book. Magic realism. Anyway, it's dialogue heavy and I have made the entire novel run as follows (example): I said, "No way." She said, "Yeah." --- Reason? I'm not sure. I could be a moron, I could be a pretentious person--the novel in a sense is about pretentiousness, so the first person narrator is naturally pretentious. I am also a fan of "minimalism," and call me crazy, but once you look at it the way I have, where it's 70 K words set up this way, with back and forth conversations (again, dialogue heavy), it looks better. There's chunks of dialogue, pages even, and personally I think it looks neater. When I read novels, sometimes I spot messy areas where the writer/editor almost wasn't sure how to deal with "he said/she said/I said." I try very hard to set up as many "dialogue" moments as I can in a manner where I do not have to specify "She said/I said/He said," so it is implied who is speaking already. I can see potential outrage from more seasoned writers than I; I too know some people make outrageous mistakes when formatting a novel/final draft. I have also read that literary agents look for reasons to toss your book aside, so one must have tact and know the best way to format their manuscript. Do you have thoughts on what I have presented?
