How do you add dialog in a scene where a flurry of memories is being shoved into your face one after another rapidly?
I was trying to write it and it can't be done. At least, the only way to do it is by writing X number of long paragraphs, but doing so destroys the purpose of a rapid flurry of memories that are entering a person's mind.
I wrote an example excerpt to show what I mean.
A multitude of memories suddenly pierced his mind in a rapid fire. One memory was in a school yard with a childhood friend "I will never leave you!" promised the friend. Another memory was in a garden with his dog. "Woof" yapped the dog. Another memory was in a train station with another woman. "Mind if I travel with you?" asked the woman.
I don't know what I am doing wrong, but it's yucky, and I think there's a better way to handle this in writing. I'm not sure how it's done usually. I could extend the sentences and put more flesh into them, but it wouldn't solve the problem and it would distract people from the main story branch.
I've seen it done in movies, but not in a novel.
