Character Conversations Causing...Yawning? 10 Directives for Dynamite Dialogue

Updated: Oct 9



Dialogue is an integral part of fiction writing, but it's always hard to nail it down, or give specific advice on how to fix it when it becomes boring. But that's what we're doing today. I'm going to give you 10 tactical tips for fixing dialogue that's falling flat. I talk about:

1) Making Every Line Serve a Purpose

2) The Importance of Character Voice

3) Combining Dialogue with Macro or Micro Actions

4) Identifying the Emotion and/or Motivation Behind Every Line of Dialogue

5) Taking Power Dynamics into Account

6) And more!


Give this episode, and tell me in the comments which tactic you are most excited to explore while writing your dialogue.
