Writing Effective Dialogue with Louise Harnby, Ep. 1.52

December 3, 2019

Are you getting stuck in your dialogue? Do you find that your characters sound alike? Maybe the pacing seems slow, the writing confusing or drab?

If so, you're not alone. We feel that way too, but we're on the hunt for solutions.

In this episode of The Writer's Journey, four editors converge to share their top tips for writing dialogue that shines. We talk about the goals of dialogue in a scene, how to use it to keep up the story's pacing, and how to create unique character voices. We nerd out over punctuation, tags, actions beats, and so much more! So if you're ready, join us for the next step on the writer's journey.
