Sure, you may think that there are several things, like poor grammar, sentence structure, and timing. But the one thing that your fans will never forgive you for is weak dialogue.
It doesn’t matter if you write the best scenes and have the best timing if your characters are flat or sound the same, that is a sure-fire way to lose your audience.
Look at some of your favorite movies. Watch how each character has their own voice and opinion about things. The characters you see in the movies are only brought to life by the actors, when the actors have a great script to work with. It is no different than writing a novel. Your characters have to have their own voice.
The best way to make sure your characters aren’t flat is by starting a journal for them. Now, I am certain you have heard it before. How if you have a journal written by your character you will have a better understanding of who they are and what makes them tick.
Building Characters Journal writing is just one way to start the conversations. You can get into their head and know how they will react to the situation you put them in. Journal writing helps you get a better understanding of what your characters want.
Now, I know a lot of people can’t stand doing the whole journal thing. When I write, I use a process of my imagination. I let the characters float around in my subconscious for a while until they start to scream at me to let them out.
The Best Book You Can Buy But one of the books that have helped me become better at my dialog is the book “Write Dazzling Dialog”.
The book will help you listen better to what your characters need. You will be able to pinpoint the drama and build better scenes.
You don’t have to take my word for it. But if you want to make a difference with your characters and create an intense scene, you should get the book. It has helped me, and I don’t have to go through the journal thing with every character. Just a few quick notes about who my characters are and then off to the computer I go.
“Write Dazzling Dialog” will help you build up your characters there’s no doubt. Or you could just continue to use the movies as your guidelines. But if you want to stand out of the crowd and give your audience something to root, cry, cheer, scream over, then you are going to have to work on your dialog.
“Write Dazzling Dialog” doesn’t just work for novels it helps those who write screenplays as well. So get your copy today and see how your characters become their own entities in which your audience can get involved with. After all, the love affair begins with “Hello.”
