30 Days of Writing Questions-Day 20

Ganked from zekkass

Here's the list

20. What are your favorite character interactions to write?

I'm not sure if this means type of interactions or which specific characters I like to have interacting.

I love doing dialogue, especially witty banter or pure snark, yet another reason I'm drawn to characters like House and Jools, or my smart-talking, Sue-ish mystery protagonists.

The smut/angst combo only works when there's some really bruising dialogue to make sure the knives are well and truly twisted. My all time favorite would be when I can make the killer ending line a dialogue zinger as well.

The end of "Like a Hurricane" is a good example.

Bobby turned around.

“How the long is the hurting like bloody hell going to last?”

“I’ll let you know when it stops.” he said softly and watched the door slam shut.
