I find myself squelching an urge to have characters leave the room so that only two speaking people are in the scene. I don’t think of this when I’m reading someone else’s story, but when writing my own, I feel pressure to not forget the extra characters and wonder if they are being perceived as standing around for no reason.

What are your thoughts on this?
