As for cracking on - the stuff I've been writing recently has been hard to do because some of it's coming from very negative personal experience so I've not been so keen on the splurge method. This next bit's more action-based and character-led and really I've already got it mapped out mostly so it'll be fun and so my speed will pick up - when I'm on a roll I can do 2000 words a day easy...

As for 'naturalness' I tend to go over every chapter as I finish and read any dialogue out loud (well in a whisper mostly as there's a lot of accents and I sound terrible ). I find it easier to fish any really silly-sounding bits that way
