I used to be a pretty good conversationalist. Now, the topics rattling around in my head would not interest most people. For instance, I could spend several hours discussing the merits of hardwood, engineered hardwood and laminate wood flooring. It isn't that I'm particularly knowledgeable on the subject; I'm thirsty for knowledge. If I was dating a contractor right now, we would never run out of things to talk about. Alas, I am not.
The other topic I could run into the ground has to do with my second round of edits on the book. We're working on "point of view", something most readers don't even notice and most writers obsess over. I'm considering the merits of shifting the first-person chapters by non-central characters into third person. If you've read Monsoon Season and have any idea what I just said, I'd love your opinion!
