This is an important topic. Thanks for bringing it up.

Did you ever role play when you were little? Have pretend friends that you had conversations with? Sometimes my mother swore I was talking with the rocks and trees and whatever was around me.

So maybe if you have a scene in your mind and you can mentally role play that scene, it would help.

A conversation between two people doesn't need much description outside the conversation if the writer plays it just right, sort of like this:

"Pass the sugar, honey," she said between bites of her cinnamon bun.

"You've already had sugar in that coffee," he growled.

"That was the first cup, this is the second, gimme the sugar."

"And that's your third cinnamon bun."

"So? And your point is...?"

"My point is, all that sugar's showing, your jeans are ti..."

"Look, if you don't like it, leave! There's the door!" she shouted as she flung the coffee in his direction.

Does that help?
