What are your favorite character interactions to write?
I like to write arguments, panic, and initial confrontations. Why? Because I believe those are the moments where people are most out of control emotionally and are most likely to show their true colors, to express their true feelings and say/do things that they sometimes cannot take back.
What draws me to those interactions most is dialog. I like the back and forth rapid fire exchange of heated words between characters, each desperately trying to be heard. Rhetorical questions, Smart ass remarks, verbal threats delivered cold as ice, all those things make me salivate.
I guess it’s because, through my characters, I get to say things that I normally have more self-control not to. So speaking through my characters is a defiant release for me
