As I read Angela Hunt's Writing Historical Fiction, I was struck by her advice: "Don't be so caught up in relating dialogue and action that you forget to make your reader's senses tingle."
Um, guilty. My first drafts are almost all dialogue and action with very little heart and almost no description. I don't know why, but for some reason I have to get the surface stuff down—what my characters say and do—before I'm capable of delving deeper into the feel place of a story. That place where my character experiences her surroundings (also known as writing with the five senses) and also where we see more of her heart revealed.
What about you? What part of the story—dialogue? action? description?—comes easiest to you?
