A writer in training

I’ve hit a dry spot at the moment, it’s frustrating but I need to move on. I’m thinking the source of my lack of creativity lies in a weakness in a particular skill, writing dialogue. I can write an action scene, I can describe a killer’s face or a battlefield, but I cannot write scenes with lots of character interaction to the level that can get me published. I need to work on this. Make the dialogue seem more natural. I can do this by watching more closely how people talk and their mannerisms.

I think this kind of situation calls for some Flash fiction. So in the next week or two I might post a few random scenes working on my skills in this area. So writers and readers alike stay tuned and some feedback would be great.
