current project (gargoyle in world war III)

8903447-gargoyle-statue-emphasis-on-face-and-eyes-with-a-dark-borderI am currently working on a short story about a magic gargoyle, this is based on world war III like the world never really moved on from being stuck in a 1940’s way of life, but with some technological advances we had in the late 70s.  I am unsure what category this story would be if it ever becomes a novel sized piece of work and published, I have no confidence in it’s structure so far, because it’s mostly dialogue and dialogue isn’t my strong point, in fact I think it’s my biggest weakness, so I am taking an enormous risk here.

I aimed for the story’s word count to be between 500 – 800 words, unfortunately it’s not even halfway yet and I have already done 596.

I think taking a creative writing course in September would help me immensely, because I would be able to receive feedback from other wannabe writers and they can help me hone in on my skills with dialogue writing.  Though I have heard from other people that these courses tend to shatter confidences, whereas blog writing builds you up.  I do like honest feedback, if I am showing a weakness somewhere I am prepared to talk it through and make my work better.  So any help out there, I’m ready to receive it!

Thanks!
