You Talkin’ to Me? Writing Great Dialogue

With great dialogue, you can almost feel readers lean in to the page so they won’t miss a word. Every word counts. In this seminar, you’ll find the best ways to make your characters’ dialogue both dynamic and natural as well as unique to their specific character. You’ll discover how to avoid chit-chat and write dialogue that has a true punch. Learn to better engage readers as you listen for the silence between the words as well as the words themselves and explore ways to be as true to your characters’ voices as you can.
