Talking Head Nightmare

Argh, people are talking back and forth in my Nanowrimo novel. 

Just talking!!! 

I've got to take this back somehow. I told myself this year I would not dissolve my book into talking heads and yet I'm there again. 

Beware the talking heads and make sure there is conflict in everyone of your scenes. 

Conflict does not just mean arguing or fighting it could simply tension or a foreshadowing to some point later in your novel. 

Whatever you do avoid the talking heads unless the talking adds to your plot. 

Yes, adds to the plot.  Adds to the plot. 
But not just talking to fill up space.
