Doing the character checklist this week, I realized that I hadn’t written much about dialogue. Oh, I have a couple times.
Talking About Dialogue
Once, I recorded dialogue (shh! I eavesdropped!) for a morning and talked about what you can learn from doing this.
Or, I did a post on how to make sure each character has unique dialogue.
But I’ve not tackled dialogue in general.
What topics interest you about dialogue?
- Turning talking heads into great characters
- The difference in dialogue and real conversation
- Punctuating dialogue
- Using dialogue to inject conflict
- What else?
So, I’m open for comments, suggestions, input! Where do you go for help on dialogue? What books help you the most? Any posts that help? Sure, put a link to your site in the comments if you’ve done a helpful post on dialogue!
