a recent critique I got for one of my novels said that it seemed too much like a screenplay to him. I always set the scene, and I try to show a character's emotional state w/o going into their mind a lot. I hate when writers start a scene with unattributed dialogue.

Ask yourself, "What would Dickens do?"

I've found this thread very helpful. April 1st I start a 2nd draft on my YA novel. I paged through it yesterday without reading it; first time I looked at it since I finished it at the end of Novemeber. It looks like a play in novel format only much longer!

I'm both excited by and afraid of the journey before me.
