I hate describing settings

 I know really good writers take the time to set up their backdrops with excellent descriptors and little details about the furnishings or the clothing or the texture of the environment to make it pop for the reader and convince them the writer actually did some research, but honestly, I don't have the patience for it. I just want to get to the plot already. I'm that kind of reader as well.

So I'm "finished" with chapter 6, but not quite. It's a very important chapter to the B Plot, and I'm really struggling to get the voices right. Heavy ground has to be covered, but it can't teeter off into melodrama and get lame. And at the same time, chapter 7 will absolutely require some description to get started, and I'm not particularly looking forward to that.

So, back to chapter 6. I'm going to rework it again. I'm not there yet. Happily, I took the whole week off work (no, not to write, but to watch littler kids while bigger kids are off on a camping trip), so I'm sure I'll get some work done on the story. Alright, enough stalling. Time to get back to work.
