shouldn't Anise totally be dominating the conversation anyway?
I think the reason I'm having so much trouble with this next part is I don't like having so many characters in a scene. I feel like I have to give them all equal time, equal lines, have the POV character consider each of their reactions.....

I need to not do that, I guess.

It's just really coming out all awkward and stuff.

I can't offer you advice on how to give characters equal time; I learned lots of it from you.

You don't suck. You're a wonderful writer. And just remember, even the best writers have times where they get frustrated with themselves and their writing.

You should just take a step back for a bit and the answer will come to you.

Thanks, and you're right. When I come to a passage that seems to highlight all my weak points, I need to just put it away and come back to it with fresh eyes later.
