When writing a book many people have problems with writing dialogue. They make it hard, harder than it needs to be for the reader. Dialogue when written properly literally writes itself. The characters in the book really are the people who write the story line of the book. Give them a little leeway and you don’t know where the story will end up.

When Writing Dialogue
When writing a book many people have problems with writing dialogue. They make it hard, harder than it needs to be for the reader. Dialogue when written properly literally writes itself. The characters in the book really are the people who write the story line of the book. Give them a little leeway and you don’t know where the story will end up.
The way to do it is pretend the characters are real people and are having a discussion about what you want them to discuss. That’s it that’s the trick. Depending upon the age of the person participating in the discussion, you know have your dialogue and then the story will proceed.
What really bugs the heck out of me is when I am reading a story and each line of dialogue ends with I said, he said, she said. With a little bit of imagination you can end the sentences without these offensive words which, to me, break up the conversation. Sometimes, yes it is needed to identify the character but for the most part it doesn’t need to be at the end of each sentence.
This is what separates the pros from the beginners.
Thank you for reading this article. Please feel free to read any of my other articles on various subjects.
