Sigh.

Sometimes, I really want characters to just "talk among themselves" for a bit, to pass some in-scene time while I rearrange the plot furniture, and they inevitably just stare at me blankly and shuffle their feet. And sometimes, I want to throw in two pieces of information and move on, and they decide to spend 1,500 words speculating about giant catapults. I am starting to think I should learn self-hypnosis and convince them all that at any given time I want the opposite of whatever I actually want.

(Though I would always, always rather have the second problem than the first. I can at least put excess chatter into a scrap file and mine it for later use.)
