ah crap....I've been trying to avoid the world "alot" lately, I know it's not a word, it just seems like that LOL.

And I agree, it should be realistic...maybe he was talking that the dialogue wasn't moving the story forward? I don't know...I went over what I had many many times since then...and can't find something. And if it's always a battle, then my story is out the window
