Write On!


Posted on | January 21, 2015 | Comments Off on Dialogue

Have you ever gone to a restaurant or coffee house and overheard a conversation that drove you nuts or touched your soul or made you want to step in with advice? As a writer, what does that tell you? To me it says that if a conversation stirred me up that much that it is powerful enough to write out and maybe drop into a story.

I speak with many writers who have difficult getting dialogue succinct and with impact. But dialogues happen all around us. You don’t have to use every one you hear, but some are pearls just waiting to be plucked and valued.

So – go out there with journal in hand and start documenting dialogues for your next story.

Keep the pen moving!
