Happy Easter everyone!
The article, “Speaking of Dialogue” by Robert J. Sawyer, does a nice job of showing how to balance natural sounding conversations with readability. Sawyer also gives one or two examples of how dialogue differs between screen plays, novels, and short stories and shares an exercise to help writers improve their skills in writing dialogue.
I hope you find his article as insightful as I did!
