Practical Prompt 6/15/16: Dialogue Part 4

WriteOwls

For our May “Learn to Write by Reading” challenge, we invited you to examine books that had great dialogue. Now, apply what you learned to your own manuscript.

Dialogue is a chance for characters to reveal themselves in their own words. Good dialogue often says more about the character speaking than the characters or events being discussed. Go back and re-read a dialogue scene from the book you read for this month’s challenge. Practice identifying ways the author used dialogue for characterization. Pick one technique to apply to a scene in your own story.
